Essential surfaces from intersections in the character variety

I will describe the SL2(C) character variety for a family of hyperbolic two-bridge knots. These character varieties have multiple components which intersect at points corresponding to non-integral irreducible representations. As such, these points carry lots of interesting topological information. In particular, they are associated to splittings along Seifert surfaces.
