Baskets and fibred links realizing $A_{n}$

30 Jun 2020  ·  Lucas Fernandez Vilanova ·

We prove that basket links, whose symmetrized Seifert form is congruent to the Cartan matrix of the simply laced Dynkin diagram $A_{n}$, are isotopic to the torus link $T(2,n+1)$. In addition, we provide examples of links, constructed by plumbing $n$ positive Hopf bands the core curves of which intersect at most once, with symmetrized Seifert form congruent to the Cartan matrix $A_{n}$, that are not isotopic to $T(2,n+1)$...
