## Fibered knot

In knot theory, a branch of mathematics, a knot or link K in the 3-dimensional sphere S^3 is called fibered or fibred (sometimes Neuwirth knot in older texts, after Lee Neuwirth) if there is a 1-parameter family F_t of Seifert surfaces for K, where the parameter t runs through the points of the unit circle S^1, such that if s is not equal to t then the intersection of F_s and F_t is exactly K. For example.
