Knots can be studied at many levels and from many points of view. They can be admired as artifacts of the decorative arts and crafts, or viewed as accessible intimations of a geometrical sophistication that may never be attained.5/5(1). The study of knots has led to important applications in DNA research and the synthesis of new molecules, and has had a significant impact on statistical mechanics and quantum field theory.

Colin Adams’s The Knot Book is the first book to make cutting-edge research in knot theory4/5. This 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.

As a mathematical theory, knot theory appeared at the end of the 18th century. It should be emphasised that for more than two years knot theory was studied by A.T.

Vandermonde, C.-F. Gauss (who found the famous electromagnetic link coefficient formula [Gau]), F. Klein, and M. Dehn [Dehn]. This resulted in the first known knot tables. The theory of Kelvin was later replaced by other theories about the nature of our basic matter and the theory of knots was put on the shelf.

In the latter part of the 20th century there was a renewed interest in knot theory. "Adams is an expert in knot theory, and this shows in the clarity and accuracy of his writing, and in the rich store of examples and problems We are going to see much more of knot theory and its applications, and this book is an excellent place to start." —Nature.

From the Publisher5/5(1). it came up on the right-hand side of the browser in Google (not Google books) when searching for it, so it must be frequently searched-for book; It contains some knot theory as well; Could you please help me find that book.

I hope all of these contraints will hopefully uniquely identify it. Herein, I largely (and closely) follow Colin Adams’ excellent ‘The Knot book’ [Adams, ] and Inga Johnson’s wonderful ‘An Interactive Introduction to Knot Theory’ [Johnson, ].

Any mis-takes introduced in these notes are my own. The majority of the pictures were drawn using Inkscape or tikz, with a few exceptions taken from.
