Let   be a knot in a rational homology sphere  . Then there is a unique surgery on   which results a manifold with    . We call this surgery the null surgery. When   is an L-space, the null surgery remembers the information about the genus and fiberedness of the knot. A special case of our theorem is that if the resulting manifold is      , then the dual knot is a spherical braid. This is joint work with Faramarz Vafaee.
