Links associated with generic immersions of graphs

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 4 (2004) 571–594

arXiv: math.GT/0409086

Abstract

As an extension of the class of algebraic links, A’Campo, Gibson, and Ishikawa constructed links associated to immersed arcs and trees in a two-dimensional disk. By extending their arguments, we construct links associated to immersed graphs in a disk, and show that such links are quasipositive.
