Difference between Torus knot and Twist knot

Torus knot vs. Twist knot

In knot theory, a torus knot is a special kind of knot that lies on the surface of an unknotted torus in R3. In knot theory, a branch of mathematics, a twist knot is a knot obtained by repeatedly twisting a closed loop and then linking the ends together.
