In this paper, we study the fundamental group of a twisted knots. As a corollary,
we explicitely give an infinite family of non-twited knots.
Let K be a knot in the 3-sphere S3
, and D2
a disk intersecting K in its interior. Let
, L)|, and n an integer. A -1/n-Dehn surgery along C = D2
into a new knot Kn in S3
. We say that Kn is obtained from K by (n, )-twisting along
C (see Figure 1).
