Rational surgery calculus: extension of Kirby’s theorem

Dale Rolfsen

Vol. 110 (1984), No. 2, 377–386
Abstract

Every 3-dimensional closed orientable manifold may be constructed by surgery on the 3-sphere as introduced by M. Dehn. We are concerned in this paper with answering the question: when do two surgery schemes actually produce the same 3-manifold?
