#### INTRODUCTORY LECTURES ON KNOT THEORY

World Scientific Publishing Company 2011; US$ 134.00This 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...

#### Algebraic Invariants of Links

World Scientific Publishing Company 2012; US$ 86.00This 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...

#### Knots

De Gruyter 2013; US$ 168.00This 3. edition is an introduction to classical knot theory. It contains many figures and some tables of invariants of knots. This comprehensive account is an indispensable reference source for anyone interested in both classical and modern knot theory. Most of the topics considered in the book are developed in detail; only the main... more...

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

World Scientific Publishing Company 1994; US$ 82.00The 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...

#### Symmetric Bends

World Scientific Publishing Company 1995; US$ 42.00A bend is a knot securely joining together two lengths of cord (or string or rope), thereby yielding a single longer length. There are many possible different bends, and a natural question that has probably occurred to many is: “Is there a ‘best’ bend and, if so, what is it?”Most of the well-known bends happen to be symmetric... more...

#### Functorial Knot Theory

World Scientific Publishing Company 2001; US$ 87.00Almost 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...

#### Energy of Knots and Conformal Geometry

World Scientific Publishing Company 2003; US$ 83.00Energy 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...

#### The Mathematics of Knots

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2010; Not AvailableThis book offers up-to-date original research and survey articles on actively pursued areas of mathematical knot theory and its applications in mathematical physics and cell biology. The contents arise from the Heidelberg Knot Theory Semester of winter 2008-09. more...

#### New Developments in the Theory of Knots

World Scientific Publishing Company 1990; US$ 79.00This reprint volume focuses on recent developments in knot theory arising from mathematical physics, especially solvable lattice models, Yang-Baxter equation, quantum group and two dimensional conformal field theory. This volume is helpful to topologists and mathematical physicists because existing articles are scattered in journals of many different... more...
