An algorithm to find vertical tori in small Seifert fiber spacesTao Li (1) Boston College, Chestnut Hill, United States
We give an algorithm to find vertical essential tori in small Seifert fiber spaces with infinite fundamental group. This implies that there are algorithms to decide whether a 3-manifold is a Seifert fiber space.
Keywords: Algorithm, 3-manifold, Seifert fiber space, immersed surface
