This well-written and interesting quantity, meant for undergraduates, introduces knot concept, a space of turning out to be curiosity in modern arithmetic. The hands-on strategy positive aspects many routines to be accomplished by way of readers. must haves are just a easy familiarity with linear algebra and a willingness to discover the topic in a hands-on manner.
The starting bankruptcy bargains actions that discover the realm of knots and hyperlinks — together with video games with knots — and invitations the reader to generate their very own questions in knot idea. next chapters consultant the reader to find the formal definition of a knot, households of knots and hyperlinks, and diverse knot notations. Additional issues contain combinatorial knot invariants, knot polynomials, unknotting operations, and digital knots.
