# Twist knot and Unknotting number

## Difference between Twist knot and Unknotting number

### Twist knot vs. Unknotting number

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. In the mathematical area of knot theory, the unknotting number of a knot is the minimum number of times the knot must be passed through itself (crossing switch) to untie it.

## Similarities between Twist knot and Unknotting number

Twist knot and Unknotting number have 9 things in common (in Unionpedia): Crossing number (knot theory), Figure-eight knot (mathematics), Knot theory, Mathematics, Stevedore knot (mathematics), Three-twist knot, Torus knot, Trefoil knot, Unknot.

### Crossing number (knot theory)

In the mathematical area of knot theory, the crossing number of a knot is the smallest number of crossings of any diagram of the knot.

### Figure-eight knot (mathematics)

In knot theory, a figure-eight knot (also called Listing's knot or a Cavendish knot) is the unique knot with a crossing number of four.

### Knot theory

In topology, knot theory is the study of mathematical knots.

### Mathematics

Mathematics (from Greek μάθημα máthēma, "knowledge, study, learning") is the study of such topics as quantity, structure, space, and change.

### Stevedore knot (mathematics)

In knot theory, the stevedore knot is one of three prime knots with crossing number six, the others being the 62 knot and the 63 knot.

### Three-twist knot

In knot theory, the three-twist knot is the twist knot with three-half twists.

### Torus knot

In knot theory, a torus knot is a special kind of knot that lies on the surface of an unknotted torus in R3.

### Trefoil knot

In topology, a branch of mathematics, the trefoil knot is the simplest example of a nontrivial knot.

### Unknot

The unknot arises in the mathematical theory of knots.
