Rational seifert surfaces in Seifert fibered spaces

Licata, Joan; Sabloff, Joshua M


Rationally null-homologous links in Seifert fibered spaces may be represented combinatorially via labeled diagrams. We introduce an additional condition on a labeled link diagram and prove that it is equivalent to the existence of a rational Seifert surface for the link. In the case when this condition is satisfied, we generalize Seifert's algorithm to explicitly construct a rational Seifert surface for any rationally null-homologous link. As an application of the techniques developed in the...[Show more]
