Ribbon knots with different symmetric union presentations

Taizo Kanenobu and Shuhei Yoshikawa

Vol. 16 (2023), No. 1, 167–182

We display further examples of ribbon knots with different symmetric union presentations. We show that these pairs of symmetric union diagrams are not symmetrically equivalent by the refined version of the Jones polynomial defined by Eisermann and Lamm or a certain technique introduced by Collari and Lisca.
