- The lattice stick number sL(L) of a link L is defined to be the minimal number of straight line segments required to construct a stick presentation of L in the cubic lattice. Hong, No and Oh [Upper bound on lattice stick number of knots, Math. Proc. Cambridge Philos. Soc. 155 (2013) 173-179] found a general upper bound sL(K) ≤ 3c(K) + 2. A rational link can be represented by a lattice presentation with exactly 4 z-sticks. An n-circuit is the disjoint union of n arcs in the lattice plane 2. An n-circuit presentation is an embedding obtained from the n-circuit by connecting each n pair of vertices with one line segment above the circuit. By using a two-circuit presentation, we can easily find the lattice presentation with exactly four z-sticks. In this paper, we show that an upper bound for the lattice stick number of rational p q-links realized with exactly four z-sticks is 2p + 6. Furthermore, it is 2p + 5 if L is a two-component link. © 2018 World Scientific Publishing Company.
