We study the connections among the mapping class group of the twice punctured torus, the cyclic branched coverings of (1, 1)-knots and the cyclic presentations of groups. We give the necessary and sufficient conditions for the existence and uniqueness of the n-fold strongly-cyclic branched coverings of (1, 1)-knots, through the elements of the mapping class group. We prove that every n-fold strongly-cyclic branched covering of a (1, 1)-knot admits a cyclic presentation for the fundamentaldoi:10.1017/s0305004103006686 fatcat:ey7jf33rsrgfzm3mkoaz5aczqm
