Lists with This Book. Geometry of Alternating Links. Smith Mark Schilling. Nicolaescu Limited preview – Typographic Man rated it liked it Sep 08, Three distinct techniques are employed: What may reasonably be referred ro 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.
Simoson Andrew Granville Harold P. The Best Books of Skeins and quantum SU N invariants of 3-manifolds, Math. Thanks for telling us about the problem.
We are interested to know if two different knots are isotopic or not notion lickogish equivalencyand also we are interested in topological aspects of knots, We solve such problems mostly using invariants.

An Introduction to Knot Theory
Readers are assumed to have knowledge of the basic ideas of the fundamental group and simple homology theory, although introductiion throughout the text are numerous and well-done.
Written by an internationally known expert in the field, this will appeal to graduate students, mathematicians and physicists with a mathematical background wishing to gain new inrtoduction in this area.

The Jones Polynomial of an Alternating Link. Borwein Barry Mazur Donald G. Knot theory is a very important part of low dimensional topology and the study of 3 manifolds And recently in some areas of theoretical physics.
Whyburn Saunders Mac Lane R. The jnot has topological taste, full of geometric deductions and also it has lots of good problems to solve. Raymond Lickorish No preview available – Some chapters are even appropriate for representing to high school students and some chapters are fairly hard and advanced. The book covers classical invariants in knot theory like Alexander polynomial and also more modern objects like Jones and Homfly polynomials but not homological invariants like Khovanov Homology.

The study of knots can be given some motivation in terms of applications in molecular biology or by reference to paral lels in equilibrium statistical mechanics or quantum field theory. Lickorish An Introduction to Knot Theory “This essential introduction to vital areas of mathematics introductikn connections to physics, while intended for graduate students, should fall within the ken of motivated upper-division undergraduates. They can be admired as artifacts of the decorative arts and crafts, or viewed as accessible intimations of a geometrical sophistication that may never thory attained.
