Knot concordance in 3-manifolds with an application
Eylem Zeliha Yildiz, Department of Mathematics, Michigan State University ,
I will discuss PL and smooth knot concordances in 3-manifolds. In particular I will show that all the knots in the free homotopy class of $S^1\times pt$ in $S^1 \times S^2$ are smoothly concordant to each other. I will also discuss an application of this concordances to constructing exotic 4-manifolds.
