Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In this paper, we give an explicit formula for the twisted Alexander polynomial of any torus link and show that it is a locally constant function on the SL(2, C)-character variety. We also discuss similar things for the higher-dimensional twisted Alexander polynomial and the Reidemeister torsion.
