ON CLASSIFICATION OF HEEGAARD SPLITTINGS AND TRIANGULATIONS
, 1997
"... In this paper we consider Heegaard splittings of 3manifolds. By using Gabai’s concept of thin position on the 1skeleton of some polyhedral decomposition, together with CassonGordon’s concept of strong irreducibility, we prove the Main Theorem (4.0). This theorem will allow us to classify the Heeg ..."

ON NONCOMPACT HEEGAARD SPLITTINGS
, 2006
"... Abstract. A Heegaard splitting of an open 3manifold is the partition of the manifold into two noncompact handlebodies which intersect on their common boundary. This paper proves several noncompact analogues of theorems about compact Heegaard splittings. The main theorem is: if N is a compact, con ..."

Flipping and stabilizing Heegaard splittings
"... Abstract. We show that the number of stabilizations needed to interchange the handlebodies of a Heegaard splitting of a closed 3manifold by an isotopy is bounded below by the smaller of twice its genus or half its Hempel distance. This is a combinatorial version of a proof by Hass, Thompson and Thu ..."

Transverse Heegaard splittings
 Michigan Math. J
, 1997
"... Abstract. Following an example discovered by John Berge [Be2], we show that there is a 4component link L ⊂ (S1×S2)#(S1×S2) so that, generically, the result of Dehn surgery on L is a 3manifold with two inequivalent genus 2 Heegaard splittings, and each of these Heegaard splittings is of Hempel dist ..."

HEEGAARD SPLITTINGS AND THE PANTS COMPLEX
, 2005
"... Abstract. We define integral measures of complexity for Heegaard splittings based on the graph dual to the curve complex and on the pants complex defined by Hatcher and Thurston. As the Heegaard splitting is stabilized, the sequence of complexities turns out to converge to a nontrivial limit depend ..."

On psymmetric Heegaard splittings
 J. Knot Theory Ramifications
"... We show that every pfold strictlycyclic branched covering of a bbridge link in S 3 admits a psymmetric Heegaard splitting – in the sense of Birman and Hilden – of genus g = (b −1)(p −1). This gives a complete converse of one of the results of the two authors. Moreover, we introduce the concept o ..."

Heegaard splittings of twisted bundles
, 2006
"... Abstract. We characterize Heegaard splittings of twisted Ibundles over closed nonorientable surfaces and prove that there is only one irreducible splitting, which is obtained by taking a boundary parallel surface and adding a vertical 1handle. Then we use the result to prove that irreducible Heega ..."

Closed Braids and Heegaard Splittings
 in AMS/IP Studies in Advanced Mathematics 24, Amer. Math Society and International
, 2001
"... In this note we will be investigating a strategy for constructing 3manifolds that have multiple strongly irreducible Heegaard splittings that are not equivalent. This strategy combines techiques involving framed links and a calculus on closed braids developed by Joan Birman and the author. 1 In ..."

STABILIZATION OF HEEGAARD SPLITTINGS
, 802
"... Abstract. For each g ≥ 2 there is a 3manifold with two genus g Heegaard splittings that require g stabilizations to become equivalent. Previously known examples required at most one stabilization. Control of families of Heegaard surfaces is obtained through a deformation to harmonic maps. 1. ..."
