Abstract:

We address the primary decomposition of the knot concordance group in terms of the solvable filtration and higher order von Neumann $\rho$-invariants by Cochran, Orr, and Teichner. We show that for a non-negative integer $n$, if the connected sum of two $n$-solvable knots with coprime Alexander polynomials is slice, then each of the knots has vanishing von Neumann $\rho$-invariants of order $n$. This gives positive evidence for the conjecture that nonslice knots with coprime Alexander polynomials are not concordant. As an application, we show that if $K$ is one of Cochran–Orr–Teichner’s knots which are the first examples of nonslice knots with vanishing Casson–Gordon invariants, then $K$ is not concordant to any knot with Alexander polynomial coprime to that of $K$.
