M620: An Introduction to Knot Theory in Splash Spring 2019 (Apr. 27, 2019)
Take a piece of string, twist and tangle it to your heart's content, and tie the ends together. Now you've got yourself a knot. Can you rearrange your knot to be an unknotted circle? What kinds of knots are out there? How do you distinguish between different knots? How do enzymes in your cells unknot DNA? We will discuss these sorts of questions in the class, and have fun making and playing with string knots. Punning will knot be allowed.
