Gordian Adjacency for Positive Braid Knots

16 Nov 2020 Bell Tolson H. Luo David C. Seaton Luke Serra Samuel P.

A knot $K_1$ is said to be Gordian adjacent to a knot $K_2$ if $K_1$ is an intermediate knot on an unknotting sequence of $K_2$. We extend previous results on Gordian adjacency by showing sufficient conditions for Gordian adjacency between classes of positive braid knots through manipulations of braid words... (read more)
