Lower Bounds on Boundary Slope Diameters for Montesinos Knots Ichihara, Kazuhiro; Mizushima, Shigeru;
In this paper, we give two lower bounds on the diameter of the boundary slope set of a Montesinos knot. One is described in terms of the minimal crossing numbers of the knots, and the other is related to the Euler characteristics of essential surfaces with the maximal/minimal boundary slopes.
