title = "Decomposition into 3-Balls",

abstract = "In this chapter, we start with a connected link diagram and explain how to construct state graphs and state surfaces. We cut the link complement in S 3 along the state surface, and then describe how to decompose the result into a collection of topological balls whose boundaries have a checkerboard coloring.",
