We will define Blanchfield pairings algebraically in Proposition 10.2.
A Second Order Algebraic Knot Concordance Group
So indeed we have an isomorphism from the universal coefficient theorem as claimed and the rational Blanchfield form is non-singular.
A Second Order Algebraic Knot Concordance Group
We say that the Blanchfield pairing is metabolic if it has a metaboliser. A metaboliser for the Blanchfield form is a submodule P ⊆ H1 (MK ; Q[Z]) such that: P = P ⊥ := {v ∈ H1 (MK ; Q[Z]) | Bl(v , w) = 0 for all w ∈ P }.
A Second Order Algebraic Knot Concordance Group
W , is a metaboliser for the Blanchfield form.
A Second Order Algebraic Knot Concordance Group
Choosing p ∈ P , where P is a metaboliser for the Blanchfield form, is necessary for the representation to extend to π1 (W ).
A Second Order Algebraic Knot Concordance Group
This is very useful for applications, since the Blanchfield form can be calculated explicitly for a given knot; one method [Kea75b] calculates the form in terms of a Seifert matrix.
A Second Order Algebraic Knot Concordance Group
Note that we require that the Blanchfield form is metabolic, i.e. that the first order obstruction vanishes, in order for the representation eρ and thence the second order obstruction to be defined.
A Second Order Algebraic Knot Concordance Group
Using the 3-dimensional symmetric Poincar´e chain complex (Q[Z] ⊗QΓ N , Id ⊗θ), we can define the rational Blanchfield form (see Proposition 10.2): eBl : H1 (Q[Z] ⊗QΓ N ) × H1 (Q[Z] ⊗QΓ N ) → Q(t)/Q[t, t−1 ].
A Second Order Algebraic Knot Concordance Group
Then there is a homological ly essential simple closed curve J on F , which has self linking number zero, so corresponds to a metaboliser of the Blanchfield form, such that the integral of the Levine-Tristram signature function of J vanishes, considering J as a knot in S 3 .
A Second Order Algebraic Knot Concordance Group
Note the absence of Blanchfield linking pairings as well as intersection pairings.
A Second Order Algebraic Knot Concordance Group
Z[Z] ⊗Z[Z⋉H ] N , Id ⊗θ), contains the information necessary to extract the Blanchfield pairing.
A Second Order Algebraic Knot Concordance Group
The Blanchfield pairing is non-singular, sesquilinear and Hermitian.
A Second Order Algebraic Knot Concordance Group
Then suppose that we have a metaboliser PQ for the rational Blanchfield form.
A Second Order Algebraic Knot Concordance Group
PZ := PQ ∩ (Z ⊗Z H1 (Z[Z] ⊗Z[Z⋉H ] N )) for the integral Blanchfield form, since the calculation, restricted to the image of H1 (Z[Z] ⊗Z[Z⋉H ] N ), is the same for the two forms.
