To get bounds on how quickly the above function goes to infinity as M approaches the volume of the Whitehead link complement, the paper of Neumann and Zagier might be of use.

Thank you in advance! It was just such a lecture that got me interested in mathematics, and now I am in graduate school.

That's related (and interesting), but doesn't directly address the question, viz. what results have been proven first using NSA.
