S-equivalence of knots.

Kearton, C. (2004) 'S-equivalence of knots.', Journal of knot theory and its ramifications., 13 (06). pp. 709-717.


S-equivalence of classical knots is investigated, as well as its relationship with mutation and the unknotting number. Furthermore, we identify the kernel of Bredon's double suspension map, and give a geometric relation between slice and algebraically slice knots. Finally, we show that every knot is S-equivalent to a prime knot.
