Knot Theory The mathematical study of knots . Knot theory considers questions such as the following:
1. Given a tangled loop of string, is it really knotted or can it, with enough ingenuity and/or luck, be untangled without having to cut it?
2. More generally, given two tangled loops of string, when are they deformable into each other?
3. Is there an effective algorithm (or any algorithm to speak of) to make these determinations?
Although there has been almost explosive growth in the number of important results proved since the discovery of the Jones polynomial , there are still many "knotty" problems and conjectures whose answers remain unknown. Knot Link search

Knot Theory
A knot is an embedding of S1 in S3 (a 1-sphere in a 3-sphere, or a circle in three space plus the point at infinity), and a link is a disjoint collection of knots.
We generally think of a link as being a set of interlocking rings, such as a chain, but here we include unlinked sets, and the rings comprising them can be knotted. A periodic orbit of a continuous time dynamical system with two degrees of freedom is a knot since it is a closed loop embedded in three space. A subset of the set of periodic orbits of a system forms a linkin other words, the periodic orbits may be tangled up with each other in complex and interesting ways. Chaotic dynamical systems are especially interesting from a knot theoretic point of view, as they have an infnite set of unstable periodic orbits that may be tangled in a way that includes every possible type of knot.
There are many ways to characterize knots and links that may be used to characterize the orbits of dynamical systems. Among these are the polynomial invariants:
  • Alexander Polynomial
  • Conway Polynomial
  • Jones Polynomial
  • HOMFLYPT Polynomial Suppose we have chaotic time series data from a black box and we want to determine the equations of the underlying dynamics in the box. We may reconstruct the phase space of the experimental system from its time series by the method of time delay embedding and extract the periodic orbits. With a few periodic orbits in hand, we may be able to characterize the dynamics of the system from the polynomial invariants of the knots and links that are the periodic orbits.

    Here you will find a collection of knots and links, viewed from a (mostly) mathematical perspective. Nearly all of the images here were created with KnotPlot, a fairly elaborate program to visualize and manipulate mathematical knots in three and four dimensions. You can download KnotPlot and try it on your computer (see the link below), but first you may want to look at some of the images in the picture gallery.

    DNA AND KNOT THEORY Introduction: DNA is the genetic material of all cells, containing coded information about cellular molecules and processes. DNA consists of two polynucleotide strands twisted around each other in a double helix. The first step in cellular division is to replicate DNA so that copies can be distributed to daughter cells. Additionally, DNA is involved in transcribing proteins that direct cell growth and activities. However, DNA is tightly packed into genes and chromosomes. In order for replication or transcription to take place, DNA must first unpack itself so that it can interact with enzymes. DNA packing can be visualized as two very long strands that have been intertwined millions of times, tied into knots, and subjected to successive coiling. However, replication and transcription are much easier to accomplish if the DNA is neatly arranged rather than tangled up in knots. Enzymes are essential to unpacking DNA. Enzymes act to slice through individual knots and reconnect strands in a more orderly way. Importance: We can gain insight into the unknotting of DNA by using principles of topology. Topologists study the invariant properties of geometric objects, such as knots. Tightly packed DNA in the genes must quickly unknot itself in order for replication or transcription to occur. This is a topological problem.

    Bicycle tracks
    C. Dennis Thron has called attention to the following passage from The Adventure of the Priory School , by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle: `This track, as you perceive, was made by a rider who was going from the direction of the school.' `Or towards it?' `No, no, my dear Watson. The more deeply sunk impression is, of course, the hind wheel, upon which the weight rests. You perceive several places where it has passed across and obliterated the more shallow mark of the front one. It was undoubtedly heading away from the school.'
    Discuss this passage. Does Holmes know what he's talking about?
    Try to come up with a method for telling which way a bike has gone by looking at the track it has left. There are all kinds of possibilities here. Which methods do you honestly think will work, and under what conditions? For example, does your method only work if the bike has passed through a patch of wet cement? Would it work for tracks on the beach? Tracks on a patch of dry sidewalk between puddles? Tracks through short, dewy grass? Tracks along a thirty-foot length of brown package-wrapping paper, made by a bike whose tires have been carefully coated with mud, and which has been just ridden long enough before reaching the paper so that the tracks are not appreciably darker at one end of the paper than the other?
    Try to determine the direction of travel for the idealized bike tracks in Figure Figure 1: Which way did the bicycle go?

TODO List knot theory (Topic) Knot theory is the study of knots and links Roughly a knot is a simple closed curve in , and two knots are considered equivalent if and only if one can be smoothly deformed into another. This will often be used as a working definition as it is simple and appeals to intuition. Unfortunately this definition can not be taken too seriously because it includes many pathological cases, or wild knots, such as the connected sum of an infinite Links are defined in terms of knots, so once we have a definition for knots we have no trouble defining them. Definition A link is a set of disjoint knots. Each knot is a component of the link. In particular a knot is a link of one component. Luckily the knot theorist is not usually interested in the exact form of a knot or link, but rather the in its

  • Quantum gravity
  • I collaborate with Rodolfo Gambini, of the University of the Republic in Montevideo, Uruguay, our collaboration has been going on since 1990. We coauthored a book "Loops, knots, gauge theories and quantum gravity" in 1996 and have published many papers together. We study the quantization of general relativity using canonical methods. There is a small community pursuing this kind of research, which is complementary to the mainstream approach to quantum gravity: string theory. String theorists believe that one cannot quantize general relativity because it is not a fundamental theory and one has to replace it with string theory in order to quantize it. General relativity will be an "effective" "low energy" theory.
