A topologically minimal, weakly reducible, unstabilized Heegaard splitting of genus three is critical

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 16 (2016) 1427–1451
Abstract

Let (V,W;F) be a weakly reducible unstabilized genus three Heegaard splitting in an orientable, irreducible 3–manifold M. In this article, we prove that either the disk complex D(F) is contractible or F is critical. Hence, the topological index of F is 2 if F is topologically minimal.
