Abstract

This workshop is devoted to providing a hands-on experience with knots and how to make accurate mathematical models for their topological properties. Participants will be supplied with rope and we will give instructions for making knots, unknots, rope tricks, and topological demonstrations. We will show how the topological phenomena seen in rope are precisely modeled by the use of the combinatorics of graphs and knot diagrams.
