**Prime Knot Theorem**

Friday, March 25, 2016, 5:00pm

Ungar Building Room 402

**Abstract: **

In this talk I will discuss the Prime Knot Theorem which states that there are knots that cannot be produced from non-trivial knots under the operation of connected sum. The theorem is pretty simple, but I will use it to demonstrate techniques in Algebraic Topology as I sketch two or three proofs of the theorem.
