Introduction to knot theory

Friday, September 7, 2012, 3:45pm
Ungar Building Room 402

Abstract:A knot can be thought of as a continuous loop in three dimensional space made up of a thin elastic rubber band. Given two knots we would like to be able to determine if one can be deformed into the other without cutting or pasting. In this talk, I would like to give a few basic definitions and then introduce various techniques which will allow us to distinguish knots.
