An Introduction to Knot Theory
Motivation for such a topological study of knots is meant to come from a curiosity to know how the ge ometry of three-dimensional space can be explored by knotting phenomena using precise mathematics. Krantz David H. What liciorish 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.
