Kawauchi, de Gruyter, Back cover copy This volume is an introduction to mathematical knot theory – the theory of knots and links of simple closed curves in three-dimensional space.
Ming marked it as to-read May 31, There are no discussion topics on this book yet. Hardcoverpages. What may reasonably be referred to as knot theory has expanded enormously over the last decade, and while the author describes important discoveries from throughout the twentieth century, the latest discoveries such as quantum invariants of 3-manifolds – as well as generalisations and applications of the Jones polynomial – are also included, presented in an easily understandable style.

Davis Leon Henkin Jack K. Three distinct techniques are employed: We are interested to know if two different knots are isotopic or not licoorish of equivalencyand also we are interested in topological aspects of knots, We solve such problems mostly using invariants.
Thus, this constitutes a comprehensive introduction to the field, presenting modern developments in the context of classical material. Millett Steven G.
Generalisations of the Jones Polynomial. Oct 21, Saman Habibi Esfahani rated it liked it. Readers are assumed to have knowledge of the basic ideas of the fundamental group and simple homology theory, although explanations throughout the text are plentiful and well done. Looking for beautiful books?

An Introduction to Knot Theory
Ben rated it it was amazing Jul 16, Motivation for such a topological study of knots is meant to come from a curiosity to know how the ge ometry untroduction three-dimensional space can be explored by knotting phenomena using precise mathematics. Lickorieh consists of a selection of topics that graduate students have found to be a successful introduction to the field. Written by an internationally known expert in the field, this volume will appeal to graduate students, mathematicians, and physicists with a mathematical background who wish to gain new insights in this area.
