Hass, Joel (ed.) et al., Proceedings of the Kirbyfest, Berkeley, CA, USA, June 22-26, 1998. Warwick: University of Warwick, Institute of Mathematics, Geom. Topol. Monogr. 2, 1-21 (1999).
This paper describes a combinatorial condition for when immersed or embedded incompressible surfaces in compact 3-manifolds with tori boundary components remain incompressible after Dehn surgery. The result is applied to hierarchies and cubed manifolds.
