Lefschetz fibrations on compact Stein surfaces: erratum

Selman Akbulut and Burak Ozbagci

Full-text: Open access


Sections 3 and 4 of “Lefschetz fibrations on compact Stein surfaces” [Geometry and Topology 5 (2001) 319–334] contained errors due to insufficient care with framing conventions. This note corrects these errors. The following material is a verbatim substitute for half of section 3 and section 4 starting at the heading “General case” on page 330.
