The Alexander virtual biquandle is an algebraic invariant of virtual knots and links taking values in a three-variable Laurent polynomial ring. In this talk we will see a family of polynomial-valued invariants of virtual knots which arise from the Alexander virtual biquandle generalizing the classical Alexander polynomial.
