Embedding homology 3-spheres in S5

Steven Paul Plotnick

Vol. 101 (1982), No. 1, 147–151
Abstract

The purpose of this note is to give a proof independent of high-dimensional surgery theory of the following embedding result:

Theorem. Let Σ3 be the homology 3-sphere resulting from a Dehn surgery of type 12a on a knot in S3. Then Σ3 smoothly embeds in S5 with complement a homotopy circle.
