    Knots and links are studied by mathematicians, and are also finding increasing application in chemistry and biology. Many naturally occurring questions are often simple to state, yet finding the answers may require ideas from the forefront of research. This readable and richly illustrated book explores selected topics in depth in a way /5(4). Twist knots and augmented links In this chapter, we study a class of hyperbolic knots that have some of the simplest geometry, namely twist knots. This class includes the gure-8 knot, the 5 2 knot, and the 6 1 knot that we have encountered so far. Twist knots and Dehn llings We rst de ne twist knots and show that they have a geometric limitFile Size: KB.

The basic ideas and results may be appreciated intuitively, simply by playing with pieces of string (\eg \cite{Ash44,Ada94}).

Rolfsen's beautiful book on knots and links can be read by anyone, from beginner to expert, who wants to learn about knot theory. Beginners find an inviting introduction to the elements of topology, emphasizing the tools needed for understanding knots, the fundamental group and van Kampen's theorem, for example, which are then applied to concrete problems, such as computing knot groups.4/5(1).

Review: Knots and Links User Review - Dustin Tran - Goodreads. Math - Geometric Topology; Rob Kirby. Somewhat hard to follow and old, ugly typeset font. The formatting is pretty ugly as well, but the concepts are there regardless. Because of the few textbooks on the subject, this book still remains as one of the standard classics.4/5(1).

One of my interests is these things called ideal knots (and links) about which I’ll write more later, no doubt. Anyway, I recently slammed together some code and scripts to produce raytraces of them spinning. Here’s the two component linkspinning. The colours indicate curvature, by the way.

The best way to start a study of knots is by actually tying them which you may find easier than drawing. Knots constructed from linked strands are referred to as "links'' and colouring the separate strands, or tying the knots with different coloured ropes, will help you to investigate the different types.

"Links" (reviewed by Mary Whipple ) "We will defer only to the brute force of guns. Maybe the answer lies in [Somalia's] history since the days of colonialism, and later in those of the Dictator, and more recently during the presence of U.S. troops: these treacherous times have disabused us of our faith in uniformed authorities—which have proven to be redundant, corrupt, clannish.

A more recent book, also called Knots and Links but this time by Cromwell, has a similar spirit to Rolfsen’s book but is more oriented toward knot theory, rather than low-dimensional topology more broadly, and requires less background than Rolfsen’s book.

Part of the joy of reading Rolfsen’s text, however, is the joy of the scenic detour!Knots and Links, by Dale Rolfsen, Publish or Perish, Inc., One of the classic textbooks in the field. Clear and thorough, but (like Kauffman) not an introduction except for those with a mathematical background.

Especially helpful is the appendix (by James Bailey and Ali Roth) on prime knots and links. Paperback. Knots, by Alexei Sossinsky.A knot is an intentional complication in cordage which may be useful or decorative. Practical knots may be classified as hitches, bends, or splices: a hitch fastens a rope to another object; a bend unites two rope ends; and a splice is a multi-strand bend or loop.

A knot may also refer, in the strictest sense, to a stopper or knob at the end of a rope to keep that end from slipping through a.
