Erratum: On iterated torus knots and transversal knots

William W Menasco

Geometry & Topology 11 (2007) 1731–1732

Correction to Geometry & Topology 5 (2001) 651–682

Abstract

In [?] the author’s Theorems 1.1 and 1.2, combined, implied that iterated torus knots are transversally simple. This result is in error and this erratum pinpoints the error. In [?] a more subtle result is proven resulting in giving a geometric realization of the Honda–Etnyre transverse (2,3)–cable of the (2,3)–torus knot example (appendix joint with H Matsuda).
