- As with all of these, note that the link never changes during the fibration.
- This is not really an example of Milnor's Fibration
since this function does not have a singularity at the origin.
However, we can do the same process, and we still get a
- The link is a (1, 3)-torus link, which is just a trivial
- The genus of the "double fiber + link" is
(1-1)(3-1) = 0, which means it is topologically a sphere.
- If I used the function z-w,
I would get pictures that are topologically equivalent. The
would be a circle and the double fibers would be spheres. I
thought this example looked more interesting, even though it is
technically the same.
