AbstractThis work illustrates a method to investigate certain smooth, codimension-two, real submanifolds of spheres of arbitrary odd dimension (with complements that fiber over the circle) using a novel supersymmetric quantum invariant. Algebraic (fibered) links, including Brieskorn-Pham homology spheres with exotic differentiable structure, are examples of said manifolds with a relative diffeomorphism-type that is determined by the corresponding (multivariate) Alexander polynomial.
