#### VIRTUAL KNOTS

World Scientific Publishing Company 2012; US$ 126.00The 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...

#### Algebraic Invariants of Links

World Scientific Publishing Company 2012; US$ 81.00This 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...

#### Braid Group, Knot Theory and Statistical Mechanics II

World Scientific Publishing Company 1994; US$ 77.00The present volume is an updated version of the book edited by C N Yang and M L Ge on the topics of braid groups and knot theory, which are related to statistical mechanics. This book is based on the 1989 volume but has new material included and new contributors. more...

#### Braid Groups

Springer New York 2008; US$ 64.95In 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...

#### Energy of Knots and Conformal Geometry

World Scientific Publishing Company 2003; US$ 78.00Energy of knots is a theory that was introduced to create a “canonical configuration” of a knot — a beautiful knot which represents its knot type. This book introduces several kinds of energies, and studies the problem of whether or not there is a “canonical configuration” of a knot in each knot type. It also considers... more...

#### Functorial Knot Theory

World Scientific Publishing Company 2001; US$ 82.00Almost since the advent of skein-theoretic invariants of knots and links (the Jones, HOMFLY, and Kauffman polynomials), the important role of categories of tangles in the connection between low-dimensional topology and quantum-group theory has been recognized. The rich categorical structures naturally arising from the considerations of cobordisms have... more...

#### Handbook of Knot Theory

Elsevier Science 2005; US$ 185.00This book is a survey of current topics in the mathematical theory of knots. For a mathematician, a knot is a closed loop in 3-dimensional space: imagine knotting an extension cord and then closing it up by inserting its plug into its outlet. Knot theory is of central importance in pure and applied mathematics, as it stands at a crossroads of topology,... more...

#### INTRODUCTORY LECTURES ON KNOT THEORY

World Scientific Publishing Company 2011; US$ 125.00This 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...
