    • Repeated boundary slopes for 2-bridge knots 

      Curtis, Cynthia; Franczak, William; Leiser, Randolph J.; Manheimer, Ryan J. (World Scientific Publishing, 2015)
      We investigate the question of when distinct branched surfaces in the complement of a 2-bridge knot support essential surfaces with identical boundary slopes. We determine all instances in which this occurs and identify ...
    • State invariants of 2-bridge knots 

      Curtis, Cynthia; Longo, Vincent (World Scientific Publishing, 2018)
      In this paper, we consider generalizations of the Alexander polynomial and signature of 2-bridge knots by considering the Gordon–Litherland bilinear forms associated with essential state surfaces of the 2-bridge knots. We ...
