An Introduction to Knot Theory

Dispatched from the UK in 3 business days When will my order arrive? Home Contact Us Help Free delivery worldwide. An Introduction to Knot Theory. Description A selection of topics which graduate students have found to be a successful introduction to the field, employing three distinct techniques: Each topic is developed until significant results are achieved and each chapter ends with exercises and brief accounts of the latest research.

What may reasonably be referred to as knot theory has expanded enormously over the last decade and, while the author describes important discoveries throughout the twentieth century, the latest discoveries such as quantum invariants of 3-manifolds as well as generalisations and applications of the Jones polynomial are also included, presented in an easily intelligible style. Readers are assumed to have knowledge of the basic ideas of the fundamental group and simple homology theory, although explanations throughout the text are numerous and well-done.

It consists of a selection of topics that graduate students have found to be a successful introduction to the field. Three distinct techniques are employed: Each topic is developed until significant results are achieved, and chapters end with exercises and brief accounts of state-of-the-art research. What may reasonably be referred to as knot theory has expanded enormously over the last decade, and while the author describes important discoveries from throughout the twentieth century, the latest discoveries such as quantum invariants of 3-manifolds – as well as generalisations and applications of the Jones polynomial – are also included, presented in an easily understandable style.
