ALMOST NORMAL HEEGAARD SURFACES
, 2003
"... Abstract. We present a new and shorter proof of Stocking’s result that any strongly irreducible Heegaard surface of a closed orientable triangulated 3– manifold is isotopic to an almost normal surface. We also reprove a result of Jaco and Rubinstein on normal spheres. Both proofs are based on the “ ..."

CRITICAL HEEGAARD SURFACES
, 2002
"... Abstract. In this paper we introduce critical surfaces, which are described via a 1complex whose definition is reminiscent of the curve complex. Our main result is that if the minimal genus common stabilization of a pair of strongly irreducible Heegaard splittings of a 3manifold is not critical, t ..."

HEEGAARD SURFACES AND THE DISTANCE OF AMALGAMATION
, 2008
"... Let M1 and M2 be orientable irreducible 3–manifolds with connected boundary and suppose ∂M1 ∼ = ∂M2. Let M be a closed 3–manifold obtained by gluing M1 to M2 along the boundary. We show that if the gluing homeomorphism is sufficiently complicated, then M is not homeomorphic to S 3 and all smallge ..."

genus Heegaard splittings of M are standard in a certain sense. In particular, g(M) = g(M1) + g(M2) − g(∂Mi), where g(M) denotes the Heegaard genus of M. This theorem can also be extended to manifolds with multiple boundary components.
Lifted Heegaard Surfaces and Virtually Haken Manifolds
"... In this paper, we give infinitely many nonHaken hyperbolic genus three 3manifolds each of which has a finite cover whose induced Heegaard surface from some genus three Heegaard surface of the base manifold is reducible but can be compressed into an incompressible surface. This result supplements [ ..."

Thin position with respect to a Heegaard surface
 ALMOST NORMAL SURFACES IN KNOT COMPLEMENTS 23
, 2001
"... We present a definition of thin position for a knot in a 3manifold with respect to a Heegaard surface, motivated by Scharlamenn and Thompson's definition of thin position for 3manifolds [ST94], and Gabai's definition of thin position for knots in S3 [Gab87]. We then show that if a knot ..."

KSTABLE EQUIVALENCE FOR KNOTS IN HEEGAARD SURFACES
, 2009
"... Let K be a knot embedded in a Heegaard surface S for a closed orientable 3manifold M. We define Kstable equivalence between pairs (S, K) and (S′ , K) in M, and we prove that any two pairs are Kstably equivalent in M if they have the same surface slope. ..."

Invariant heegaard surfaces in manifolds with involutions and the heegaard genus of double covers
"... ABSTRACT. Let M be a 3manifold admitting a strongly irreducible Heegaard surface Σ and f: M → M an involution. We construct an invariant Heegaard surface for M of genus at most 8g(Σ) − 7. As a consequence, given a (possibly branched) double cover π: M → N we obtain the following bound on the Heega ..."

CRITICAL HEEGAARD SURFACES AND INDEX 2 MINIMAL SURFACES
, 2002
"... Abstract. This paper contains the motivation for the study of critical surfaces in [2]. In that paper, the only justification given for the definition of this new class of surfaces is the strength of the results. However, when viewed as the topological analogue to index 2 minimal surfaces, critical ..."

surfaces become quite natural. 1. Introduction. It is a standard exercise in 3manifold topology to show that every manifold admits Heegaard splittings of arbitrarily high genus. Hence, a “random ” Heegaard splitting does not say much about the topology of the manifold in which it sits. To use Heegaard
