Abstract
Applied to a knot K of S1 in S3, Zeeman's n-twist-spinning construction produces a knot Kn of S2 in S4 [ E. C. Zeeman , Trans. Amer. Math. Soc. 115 (1965), 471–495;]. Here the author gives an explicit "movie presentation'' of Kn, that is, a description of Kn in terms of the cross-sections Kn∩S3×{t}.
