An almost-fibered knot is a knot whose complement possesses a circular thin position in which there is one and only one weakly incompressible Seifert surface and one incompressible Seifert surface. Infinite examples of almost-fibered knots are known. In this article, we show the existence of infinitely many hyperbolic genus one knots that are not almost-fibered. 


Seifert surfaces for genus one hyperbolic knots in the 3–sphere
We prove that any collection of mutually disjoint and non-parallel genus one orientable Seifert surfaces in the exterior of a hyperbolic knot in the 3sphere has at most 5 components and that this
Circular Thin Position for Knots in S
A regular circle-valued Morse function on the knot complement CK = S 3 \ K is a function f : CK → S 1 which separates critical points and which behaves nicely in a neighborhood of the knot. Such a
Circular handle decompositions of free genus one knots
We determine the structure of the circular handle decompositions of the family of free genus one knots. Namely, if k is a free genus one knot, then the handle number h(k)= 0, 1 or 2, and, if k is not
Alternate Heegaard genus bounds distance
Suppose M is a compact orientable irreducible 3-manifold with Heegaard splitting surfaces P and Q. Then either Q is isotopic to a possibly stabilized or boundary-stabilized copy of P or the distance
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
Thin position for 3-manifolds
A signal amplitude monitor and relay driver circuit. The input signal is applied to a plurality of diodes connected in series with a set of normally closed relay contacts and a first resistor. A
