On links with locally infinite Kakimizu complexes

Jessica E Banks

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 11 (2011) 1445–1454
Abstract

We show that the Kakimizu complex of a knot may be locally infinite, answering a question of Przytycki–Schultens. We then prove that if a link L only has connected Seifert surfaces and has a locally infinite Kakimizu complex then L is a satellite of either a torus knot, a cable knot or a connected sum, with winding number 0.

Keywords
