"Knot Quandles and Quandle Knots"

Friday, October 12, 2012
from 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Science 145

A quandle is a simple algebraic structure that comes from a knot diagram. Despite their simplicity, there are still many unanswered questions about their theory and their relationship with knots and links. I will provide a gentle introduction to quandles with an eye towards the true interplay between the algebra and the combinatorial topology of knots.
