How to Tackle the Smooth Poincare Conjecture
The business about finding a symplectic structure on $X-\{pt\}$ is not my original suggestion, nor a program that I am suggesting anyone try to carry out. It is just a motivational remark I made when introducting Gromov's theorem on the recognition of ${\mathbb R}^4$. |

Are there moves between Reidemeister moves?
Your requirement that "if one fills in the corresponding loops in the Reidemeister graph with a 2-cell, the resulting space is simply connected" seems too strong. I think you probably want to require instead that the inclusion of your 2-complex into the space of knots induces an isomorphism on the fundamental group of each component. |
