where $g = \frac{1}{2}(\frac{d}{\tau} - l) + 1$ Thanks for catching my sign error!

According to Neumann and Raymond (section 1 in "Seifert Manifolds, Plumbing...", $g$ is the genus of Seifert surface $\Sigma(a,b,c)/S^{1}$.

comment When are Brieskorn Manifolds Homeomorphic?
Hi Misha, thanks for the answer. Example 2 after Theorem 7.3 states that Σ(2,9,18) and Σ(3,5,15) are diffeomorphic. Doesn't this imply a homeomorphism since they are $3$-manifolds as smooth $S^1$-bundles with equal chern number over Riemann surfaces of the same Euler characteristic (and genus)? Doesn't this refute your comment about the triples necessarily being equal?

Hi Liviu, yes, I just thumbed through "Singularities and Topology of Hypersurfaces".

Hi Misha, yes, I've read the paper. As far as I can tell it doesn't answer my questions.
