Meridional destabilizing number of knots

Toshio Saito

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 11 (2011) 1205–1242
Abstract

We define the meridional destabilizing number of a knot. This together with Heegaard genus (or tunnel number) gives a binary complexity of knots. We study its behavior under connected sum of tunnel number one knots.
