Abstract

Let $A$ be a finite abelian group and $M$ be a branched cover of an homology $3$-sphere, branched over a link $L$, with covering group $A$. We show that $H_1(M;Z[1/|A|])$ is determined as a $Z[1/|A|][A]$-module by the Alexander ideals of $L$ and certain ideal class invariants.
Keywords: Alexander ideal, branched covering, Dedekind domain, knot, link. Alexander ideal, branched covering, Dedekind domain, knot, link.
