about this item

Introducing key ideas and background for research in classical and virtual knot theory, Dye writes the proofs as simply as possible using combinatorial approaches, equivalence classes, and linear algebra to make them accessible to upper-division undergraduate students. She suggests readings from research papers in each chapter. In sections on knots and crossing, knot polynomials, and algebraic structures, she discusses such topics as virtual knots and links, a multiverse of knots, crossing invariants, the bracket polynomial, surfaces, the checkerboard framing, modifications of the bracket polynomial, knots and quandles, and Gauss diagrams.
