The seminar series will be both in person and over Zoom.

What is topology? What it can and can not be used for? These are some of the questions we will be answering in this talk as well as illustrating a wide variety of topological techniques as they appear in the study of knots and links. In particular, we will start with Lord Kelvin’s vortex theory of atoms suggesting that different knot types represent different chemical elements to the Jones polynomial and Khovanov homology.

This talk is part of the Applied Topology Colloquium series.
