Band-pass moves and the Casson-Walker-Lescop invariant

Published: July 31, 2004
Keywords: 3-manifolds, links, Casson-Walker-Lescop invariant, band-pass moves, surgery equivalence.
Subject: 57M

Computable formulas involving only linking numbers and surgery coefficients are presented for computing how the Casson-Walker-Lescop invariant changes under band pass moves in a framed link presenting a 3-manifold. There is a discussion of the relevant equivalence classes and the potential for further formulas of this type.
