Abstract
We classify smooth Brunnian (i.e., unknotted on both components) embeddings (S2 × S1) ⊔ S3 → ℝ6. Any Brunnian embedding (S2 × S1) ⊔ S3 → ℝ6 is isotopic to an explicitly constructed embedding fk,m,n for some integers k, m, n such that m ≡ n (mod 2). Two embeddings fk,m,n and fk′ ,m′,n′ are isotopic if and only if k = k′, m ≡ m′ (mod 2k) and n ≡ n′ (mod 2k). We use Haefliger’s classification of embeddings S3 ⊔ S3 → ℝ6 in our proof. The relation between the embeddings (S2 × S1) ⊔ S3 → ℝ6 and S3 ⊔ S3 → ℝ6 is not trivial, however. For example, we show that there exist embeddings f: (S2 ×S1) ⊔ S3 → ℝ6 and g, g′ : S3 ⊔ S3 → ℝ6 such that the componentwise embedded connected sum f # g is isotopic to f # g′ but g is not isotopic to g′.
