Stable plumbing for high odd-dimensional fibred knots

Daniel Lines
1987 Canadian mathematical bulletin  
Plumbing a Hopf band on the fibre-surface of a simple fibred knot is a geometric operation that produces another such knot. We show by algebraic methods that every high odd-dimensional simple fibred knot is obtained from the unknot by using this operation and its inverse.
