A family of transversely nonsimple knots

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 10 (2010) 293–314
Abstract

We apply knot Floer homology to exhibit an infinite family of transversely nonsimple prime knots starting with $1{0}_{132}$. We also discuss the combinatorial relationship between grid diagrams, braids and Legendrian and transverse knots in standard contact ${ℝ}^{3}$.
