DOUBLE KNOT SURGERIES TO S4 SELMAN AKBULUT
 

Summary: DOUBLE KNOT SURGERIES TO S4
AND S2
S2
SELMAN AKBULUT
Abstract. It is known that S4
is a union of two fishtails, and
S2
S2
is a union of two cusps (glued along their boundaries).
Here we prove that for any choice of knots K, L S3
performing
knot surgery operations S4
; S4
K,L and S2
S2
; (S2
S2
)K,L
along both of these fishtails and cusps, respectively, do not change
the diffeomorphism type of these manifolds.
