Abstract

We classify Dehn surgeries on (p, q, r) pretzel knots resulting in a manifold M(α) having cyclic fundamental group and analyze those leading to a finite fundamental group. The proof uses the theory of cyclic and finite surgeries developed by Culler, Shalen, Boyer, and Zhang. In particular, Culler-Shalen seminorms play a central role.
