Abstract: A spectral sequence is associated with any presentation of a group G. It turns out that this spectral sequence is independent of the chosen presentation. In particular if G is the fundamental group of a link L in $ {R^3}$ the spectral sequence leads to invariants that compare to the Milnor invariants of L.
