A Brieskorn manifold B(p, q, r) is the r-fold cyclic covering of the 3-sphere S3 branched over the torus knot T(p, q). Generalized Sieradski groups S(m, p, q) are groups with an m-cyclic presentation Gm(w), where the word w has a special form depending on p and q. In particular, S(m, 3, 2) = Gm(w) is the group with m generators x1,…, xm and m defining relations w(xi, xi+1, xi+2) = 1, where w(xi, xi+1, xi+2) = xi, xi+2, xi+1−1. Cyclic presentations of the groups S(2n, 3, 2) in the form Gn(w) were investigated by Howie and Williams, who showed that the n-cyclic presentations are geometric, i.e., correspond to spines of closed 3-manifolds. We establish a similar result for the groups S(2n, 5, 2). It is shown that in both cases the manifolds are n-fold branched cyclic coverings of lens spaces. To classify some of the constructed manifolds, we use Matveev’s computer program “Recognizer”.
