On primitive/Seifert-fibered constructions


J. Dean introduced the notion of primitive/Seifert-fibered knots and constructions to explain how Dehn surgeries on knots produce small Seifert fibered manifolds. We determine non-hyperbolic, primitive/Seifert-fibered knots, and show that for such knots any integral, small Seifert fibered surgery arises from a primitive/Seifert-fibered construction. We also show that any 2-orbifold $S^2(n_1, n_2, n_3)$ with a pair of indices coprime becomes the base orbifold of a Seifert fibered manifold obtained by Dehn surgery on a hyperbolic, primitive/Seifert-fibered knot in $S^3$.
