In a smooth compact 3 manifold there is an embedded loop - a diffeomorph of the circle(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Consider a torus that is the boundary of a tubular neighborhood of this loop.

If the loop is not null homotopic does that imply that the torus is not null homologous?
