In mathematics, the Alexander polynomial is a knot invariant which assigns a polynomial with integer coefficients to each knot type.
Chirality is a property of asymmetry important in several branches of science.
In mathematics, specifically in topology, the operation of connected sum is a geometric modification on manifolds.
Józef Henryk Przytycki (born October 1953 in Warsaw, Poland), is a mathematician specializing in the fields of knot theory and topology.
In the mathematical field of knot theory, the Jones polynomial is a knot polynomial discovered by Vaughan Jones in 1984.
Kenneth C. Millett (born 1941) is a professor of mathematics at the University of California, Santa Barbara.
In the mathematical field of knot theory, a knot invariant is a quantity (in a broad sense) defined for each knot which is the same for equivalent knots.
In the mathematical field of knot theory, a knot polynomial is a knot invariant in the form of a polynomial whose coefficients encode some of the properties of a given knot.
In topology, knot theory is the study of mathematical knots.
Louis Hirsch Kauffman (born February 3, 1945) is an American mathematician, topologist, and professor of Mathematics in the Department of Mathematics, Statistics, and Computer science at the University of Illinois at Chicago.
Mathematics (from Greek μάθημα máthēma, "knowledge, study, learning") is the study of such topics as quantity, structure, space, and change.
The Octacube is a large, steel sculpture of a mathematical object: the 24-cell or "octacube".
Peter J. Freyd (born February 5, 1936) is an American mathematician, a professor at the University of Pennsylvania, known for work in category theory and for founding the False Memory Syndrome Foundation.
In mathematics, a polynomial is an expression consisting of variables (also called indeterminates) and coefficients, that involves only the operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and non-negative integer exponents of variables.
In knot theory, a prime knot or prime link is a knot that is, in a certain sense, indecomposable.
In the mathematical field of knot theory, a quantum knot invariant or quantum invariant of a knot or link is a linear sum of colored Jones polynomial of surgery presentations of the knot complement.
Skein relations are a mathematical tool used to study knots.
