Jones, Vaughan F. R. (ed.) et al., Knot theory. Proceedings of the mini-semester, Warsaw, Poland, July 13-August 17, 1995. Warszawa: Polish Academy of Sciences, Institute of Mathematics, Banach Cent. Publ. 42, 255-273 (1998).
The author gives a combinatorial description of surface Morse-Smale flows in terms of chord diagrams similar to Peixoto graphs [see M. Peixoto, Dynamical systems, Bahia 1971, 389-419 (1973; Zbl 0299.58011); see also C. Gutierrez and W. de Melo, Lect. Notes Math. 597, 230-251 (1977; Zbl 0356.58007)].
