Abstract : This paper deals with certain conditions under which irreducibility of a 3-manifold is preserved under attaching a 2-handle along a simple closed curve (and then, if necessary, capping off a 2-sphere boundary component by a 3-ball).
Keywords : irreducible, pre-sphere, 2-handle, incompressible, coplanar
