We show that if a surgery on a knot in a product sutured manifold yields the same product sutured manifold, then this knot is a 0‐ or 1‐crossing knot. The proof uses techniques from sutured manifold theory. 
Knots in handlebodies with nontrivial handlebody surgeries
We give examples of knots in a genus 2 handlebody that have nontrivial Dehn surgeries yielding handlebodies and show that these knots are not 1‐bridge.
Band surgeries and crossing changes between fibered links
This work characterize cutting arcs on fiber surfaces that produce new fiber surfaces, and the changes in monodromy resulting from such cuts, and introduces an operation called generalized Hopf banding.
Boundary-reducing surgeries and bridge number
Let $M$ be a $3$--dimensional handlebody of genus $g$. This paper gives examples of hyperbolic knots in $M$ with arbitrarily large genus $g$ bridge number which admit Dehn surgeries which are
Guts in Sutured Decompositions and the Thurston Norm
. We construct an invariant called guts for second homology classes in irreducible 3-manifolds with toral boundary and non-degenerate Thurston norm. We prove that the guts of second homology classes
Complete classification of generalized crossing changes between GOF-knots
We show that the monodromy for a genus one, fibered knot can have at most two monodromy equivalence classes of once-unclean arcs. We use this to classify all monodromies of genus one, fibered knots
Cosmetic two‐strand twists on fibered knots
Let K be a knot in a rational homology sphere M . This paper investigates the question of when modifying K by adding m>0 half‐twists to two oppositely oriented strands, while keeping the rest of K
DAHAs and Skein Theory
We give a skein-theoretic realization of the $\mathfrak{gl}_n$ double affine Hecke algebra of Cherednik using braids and tangles in the punctured torus. We use this to provide evidence of a
Cosmetic $n$-tangle replacements on fibered knots
Let $K$ be a knot in a rational homology sphere $M$. This paper investigates the question of when replacing a trivial two-string tangle in $K$ with an $n$-tangle produces a knot isotopic to $K$. By
Twist families of $L$-space knots, their genera, and Seifert surgeries
Conjecturally, there are only finitely many Heegaard Floer L-space knots in $S^3$ of a given genus. We examine this conjecture for twist families of knots $\{K_n\}$ obtained by twisting a knot $K$ in


Dehn surgeries that yield fibred 3-manifolds
We study Dehn surgeries on null-homotopic knots that yield fibred 3-manifolds when an additional (but natural) homological restriction is imposed. The major tool used is Gabai’s theory of sutured

Knot Floer homology detects genus-one fibred knots
Ozsv\'ath and Szab\'o conjectured that knot Floer homology detects fibred knots. We propose a strategy to approach this conjecture based on contact topology and Gabai's theory of sutured manifold
Surgery on a knot in (Surface x I)
Suppose F is a compact orientable surface, K is a knot in F x I, and N is the 3-manifold obtained by some non-trivial surgery on K. If F x {0} compresses in N, then there is an annulus in F x I with

A norm for the homology of 3-manifolds
On construit une norme naturelle aisement calculable sur l'homologie des 3-varietes. Cette norme est une extension de la notion de genre d'un nœud
Knots are determined by their complements
This answers a question apparently first raised by Tietze [T, p. 83]. It was previously known that there were at most two knots with a given complement [CGLS, Corollary 3]. The notion of equivalence
In this paper and its continuation [3] we investigate the following question: Let M be a compact oriented irreducible 3-manifold whose boundary is a torus. If TV is obtained by filling dM along an
Foliations and the topology of 3-manifolds
In this announcement we discuss the close relationship between the topology of 3-manifolds and the foliations that is possesses. We will introduce and state the main result, then use it and the ideas
