The Legendrian satellite construction

Journal Article

We examine the Legendrian analogue of the topological satellite construction for knots, and deduce some results for specific Legendrian knots and links in standard contact three-space and the solid torus. In particular, we show that the Chekanov-Eliashberg contact homology invariants of Legendrian Whitehead doubles of stabilized knots contain no nonclassical information.
