Link concordance

In mathematics, two links L_0 \subset S^n and L_1 \subset S^n are concordant if there exists an embedding f: L_0 \times \to S^n \times such that f(L_0 \times \).

Slice genus

In mathematics, the slice genus of a smooth knot K in S3 (sometimes called its Murasugi genus or 4-ball genus) is the least integer g such that K is the boundary of a connected, orientable 2-manifold S of genus g embedded in the 4-ball D4 bounded by S3.
