The skein polynomial of a planar star product of two links

  • Kunio Murasugi (a1) and Jozef H. Przytycki (a2)

If PL(v,z) = Σbi(v)zi is the skein polynomial of a link L, and D = D1 * D2 is the diagram which is a planar star (Murasugi) product of D1 and D2 then bϕ(D)(v) = bϕ(D1)·bϕ(D2)(v) where ϕ(D) = n(D)– (s(D) – 1) and n(D) denotes the number of crossings of D, and s(D) is the number of Seifert circles of D.
