Lens space surgeries and a conjecture of Goda and Teragaito

  title={Lens space surgeries and a conjecture of Goda and Teragaito},
  author={J. Rasmussen},
Using work of Ozsváth and Szabó, we show that if a nontrivial knot in S3 admits a lens space surgery with slope p, then p ≤ 4g +3, where g is the genus of the knot. This is a close approximation to a bound conjectured by Goda and Teragaito. AMS Classification numbers Primary: 57M25 Secondary: 57R58
