#### Knots

De Gruyter 2013; US$ 140.00This 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 properties of fundamental... more...

#### VIRTUAL KNOTS

World Scientific Publishing Company 2012; US$ 218.00The 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$ 140.00This 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...

#### INTRODUCTORY LECTURES ON KNOT THEORY

World Scientific Publishing Company 2011; US$ 217.00This 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...

#### The Mathematics of Knots

Springer 2010; US$ 179.00The 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...

#### Braids

World Scientific Publishing Company 2009; US$ 172.00This book is an indispensable guide for anyone seeking to familarize themselves with research in braid groups, configuration spaces and their applications. Starting at the beginning, and assuming only basic topology and group theory, the volume's noted expositors take the reader through the fundamental theory and on to current research and applications... more...

#### Braid Groups

Springer 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...

#### Intelligence Of Low Dimensional Topology 2006

World Scientific Publishing Company 2007; US$ 292.00This 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...

#### Physical And Numerical Models In Knot Theory

World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 300.00The 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...

#### 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...
