The code available for download here was written by Andrew Geng for a project that attempted to find differently-knotted surfaces S in D4 bounded by the same transverse link in ∂D4.

This work was done under the mentorship of Paul Seidel and supported by a grant from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
