  • VIRTUAL KNOTSby Vassily Olegovich Manturov; Denis Petrovich Ilyutko

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2012; US$ 218.00

    The book is the first systematic research completely devoted to a comprehensive study of virtual knots and classical knots as its integral part. The book is self-contained and contains up-to-date exposition of the key aspects of virtual (and classical) knot theory.Virtual knots were discovered by Louis Kauffman in 1996. When virtual knot theory arose,... more...

  • Knot Theoryby Vassily Manturov

    Taylor and Francis 2004; US$ 129.95

    Since discovery of the Jones polynomial, knot theory has enjoyed a virtual explosion of important results and now plays a significant role in modern mathematics. In a unique presentation with contents not found in any other monograph, Knot Theory describes, with full proofs, the main concepts and the latest investigations in the field. The book is... more...

  • The Shape of Spaceby Jeffrey R. Weeks

    Taylor and Francis 2001; US$ 39.95

    Maintaining the standard of excellence set by the previous edition, this textbook covers the basic geometry of two- and three-dimensional spaces Written by a master expositor, leading researcher in the field, and MacArthur Fellow, it includes experiments to determine the true shape of the universe and contains illustrated examples and engaging exercises... more...

  • Physical And Numerical Models In Knot Theoryby Jorge A Calvo; Kenneth C Millett; Eric J Rawdon

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 300.00

    The physical properties of knotted and linked configurations in space have long been of interest to mathematicians. More recently, these properties have become significant to biologists, physicists, and engineers among others. Their depth of importance and breadth of application are now widely appreciated and valuable progress continues to be made... more...

  • Intelligence Of Low Dimensional Topology 2006by J Scott Carter; Seiichi Kamada; Louis H Kauffman

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2007; US$ 292.00

    This volume gathers the contributions from the international conference "Intelligence of Low Dimensional Topology 2006," which took place in Hiroshima in 2006. The aim of this volume is to promote research in low dimensional topology with the focus on knot theory and related topics. The papers include comprehensive reviews and some latest... more...

  • Braid Groupsby Christian Kassel

    Springer 2008; US$ 64.95

    In this well-written presentation, motivated by numerous examples and problems, the authors introduce the basic theory of braid groups, highlighting several definitions that show their equivalence; this is followed by a treatment of the relationship between braids, knots and links. Important results then treat the linearity and orderability of the... more...

  • The Mathematical Theory of Knots and Braidsby S. Moran

    Elsevier Science 2000; US$ 240.00

    This book is an introduction to the theory of knots via the theory of braids, which attempts to be complete in a number of ways. Some knowledge of Topology is assumed. Necessary Group Theory and further necessary Topology are given in the book. The exposition is intended to enable an interested reader to learn the basics of the subject. Emphasis is... more...

  • The Mathematics of Knotsby Markus Banagl; Denis Vogel

    Springer 2010; US$ 179.00

    The present volume grew out of the Heidelberg Knot Theory Semester, organized by the editors in winter 2008/09 at Heidelberg University. The contributed papers bring the reader up to date on the currently most actively pursued areas of mathematical knot theory and its applications in mathematical physics and cell biology. Both original research and... more...

  • INTRODUCTORY LECTURES ON KNOT THEORYby Louis H. Kauffman; Sofia Lambropoulou; Slavik Jablan

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2011; US$ 217.00

    This volume consists primarily of survey papers that evolved from the lectures given in the school portion of the meeting and selected papers from the conference. Knot theory is a very special topological subject: the classification of embeddings of a circle or collection of circles into three-dimensional space. This is a classical topological problem... more...

  • Algebraic Invariants of Linksby Jonathan Hillman

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2012; US$ 140.00

    This book serves as a reference on links and on the invariants derived via algebraic topology from covering spaces of link exteriors. It emphasizes the features of the multicomponent case not normally considered by knot-theorists, such as longitudes, the homological complexity of many-variable Laurent polynomial rings, the fact that links are not usually... more...
