Knots with compressible thin levels

Ryan Blair and Alexander Zupan

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 15 (2015) 1691–1715
Abstract

We produce embeddings of knots in thin position that admit compressible thin levels. We also find the bridge number of tangle sums where each tangle is high distance.

Keywords
thin position, distance in the curve complex, width
