HTLW02 - 3-manifold workshop

We say that \\\   is a characterizing slope for a knot \  in the 3-sphere if the oriented homeomorphism type of \\\   -surgery is sufficient to determine the knot \  uniquely. I will discuss the problem of determining which slopes are characterizing for torus knots, paying particular attention to non-integer slopes. This problem is related to determining which knots in \  \    have Seifert fibered surgeries.
