By Inga Johnson,Allison K. Henrich

This well-written and interesting quantity, meant for undergraduates, introduces knot thought, a space of transforming into curiosity in modern arithmetic. The hands-on strategy gains many workouts to be accomplished by way of readers. necessities are just a easy familiarity with linear algebra and a willingness to discover the topic in a hands-on manner.
The beginning 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 thought. next chapters advisor the reader to find the formal definition of a knot, households of knots and hyperlinks, and diverse knot notations. Additional subject matters comprise combinatorial knot invariants, knot polynomials, unknotting operations, and digital knots.
