Knot Theory

  • KnotTheory` can't cope with Dowker codes for links.
  • Credit messages are being truncated.


  • Gauss codes don't seem to mutually understood. For example, LinKnot produces the Gauss code ${1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 3, 2, 1, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9}$ from the Conway notation "3 6", but KnotTheory chokes (for example when calculating the Jones polynomial) on this.

Things to make available in KnotTheory

  • 'drawing' diagrams by mouse
  • a Conway notation header; presumably something that looks like ConwayNotation["5,3,"] or ConwayNotation["[532]"] (to agree with Livingston's format)
  • are the polynomial functions faster? if so, incorporate!


Knot Theory

  • KnotilusURL[Knot[0,1]] is broken.


  • Radmila would like to adapt the 'type casting' model to K2K.
  • directory independence; copy what KnotTheory does.
