From this, produce distinct knots Kr and Lr with Kr0 ≈ Ks0 and L4r ≈ L4s for all r ≠ s (Hint: consider repeated ±1 surgeries to a and b). 2. We call a link L = {K, K+ , . . , K+ , K− , . . , K− }, consisting of K and an even number of oppositely oriented parallel copies of K (pushed oﬀ by the framing r), an r-shaking of K. We call a knot K ⊂ S 3 an r-shake slice if an r-shaking of K bounds a disk with holes in B 4 . The r-shake genus of a knot K is the smallest integer g where some r-shaking of K occurs as a boundary of a genus g surface with holes in B 4 .

E. γj = ∂Bj , where Bj is the co-core r of the dual 2-handle of Kj j . Then if {f (γ1 ), . . , f (γk )} is a slice link in N, that is, if each f (γj ) = ∂Dj where Dj ⊂ N are properly imbedded disjoint disks. 22). 22 This reduces the extension problem to the problem of extending f ′ to complements M −M ′ → N −N ′ . Notice that M −M ′ = #s (S 1 ×B 3 ) and N −N ′ is a homotopy equivalent to #s (S 1 × B 3 ). Since every self diﬀeomorphism #s (S 1 × S 2 ) extends to a unique self diﬀeomorphism of #s (S 1 × B 3 ), the only way f ′ doesn’t extend to a diﬀeomorphism M − M ′ → N − N ′ is when N − N ′ is an exotic copy of #s (S 1 × B 3 ).

H acts on Y˜ by deck transformations making C∗ (Y˜ ) a Z[H]-module. Z[H] is an integral domain (because it is UFD ([Tan]) so we can take its ﬁeld of fractions F = Q[H], which we can consider a Z[H]-module. Hence we can form a chain complex C(Y, F ) ∶= C∗ (Y˜ ) ⊗Z[π1 (Y )] F over the ﬁeld F . Milnor torsion is deﬁned to be as the torsion of this chain complex ν(Y ) ∈ F /H. 7. If K ⊂ S 3 is a knot, and Y = SK is the 3-manifold obtained by surgering S 3 along K with framing 0, then H = Z and Z[H] = Z[t, t−1 ].
