Abstract

We give an algorithm for a surgery description of a $p$-fold cyclic branched cover of $B^3$ branched along a tangle. We generalize constructions of Montesinos and Akbulut-Kirby.
Keywords: tangle, branched cover, surgery, Heegaard decomposition tangle, branched cover, surgery, Heegaard decomposition
