When studying knots, we can often get a lot of information by removing the knot from space, and looking at the knot complement. It's pretty natural to ask, then, what happens to the area close to the removed knot? We call these areas cusps, and, in the case of hyperbolic knots, the cusp alone can tell us quite a lot. In this talk, we will give an introduction to these cusps, including their uses in topology, as well as how to find invariants from them.
