Lens spaces and dehn surgery
GThe question of when a lens space arises by Dehn surgery is discussed with a characterization given for satellite knots. The lens space L(2, 1), i.e. real projective 3-space, is shown to be unobtainable by surgery on a symmetric knot. © 1989 American Mathematical Society.
