Surrery descriptions and volmes of berge knots II: Descriptons on the minimally twisted five chain link

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

12 Scopus citations


Using Kirby calculus, we explicitly pass from Berge's R-R descriptions of ten families of knots with lens space surgeries to surgery descriptions on the minimally twisted five chain link (MT5C). Since the MT5C admits a strong inversion, we also give the corresponding tangle descriptions.
