Proper links, algebraically split links and arf invariant

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In this paper we study certain kinds of links; proper links, algebra- ically split links and Z2-algebraically split links. These links have ‘algebraic’ definitions. In fact these are defined in terms of the linking number. We shall give these links certain `geometric' definitions. By using the geometric defini- tions, we study the Arf invariants of these links.
