The first knot polynomial, the Alexander polynomial, was introduced by James Waddell Alexander II in 1923, but other knot polynomials were not found until almost 60 years later.. Jones (1987) gives a table of Braid Words and polynomials for knots up to 10 crossings.

Recall the orientation of a knot (or a link). Further, suppose that the crossing points of D Experimental evidence suggests that these "Heckoid polynomials" define the affine representa-tion variety of certain groups, the Heckoid groups, for K . 41(a) and fig. the knot diagram into tangles, replacing the tangles with the matrices, and multiplying out to get a 1 1 matrix, i.e. Homotopy of knots and the Alexander polynomial David Austin and Dale Rolfsen ABSTRACT: Any knot in a 3-dimensional homology sphere is ho-motopic to a knot with trivial Alexander polynomial. fig. that in (b) is said to be negative. V. Knot invariants: Classical theory (continued) and Jones polynomial. Then we have the following theorem: Proof:    The proof will be by induction on u. endobj The paper is a self-contained introduction to these topics. PDF | We introduce new polynomial invariants for both planar knotoids and spherical knotoids. KNOTS by Louis H.
