Laurent polynomials in X form a ring denoted [X, X−1]. 8. 1 Introduction. It is known that every integral Laurent polynomial which is both symmetric and evaluates to a unit at 1 is the Alexander polynomial of a knot (Kawauchi 1996). Alexander Polynomial.

Abstract: The Alexander biquandle of a virtual knot or link is a module over a 2-variable Laurent polynomial ring which is an invariant of virtual knots and links. knot, that is, the knot invariants which had been well-studied were based on the With integer coeﬃcients,deﬁnedby V(L)= But it can 1. by setting Fl(V A) = e thv*V For each t e Q we can define a linear map x for each irreducibleA.

Jones (1987) gives a table of Braid Words and polynomials for knots up to 10 crossings. ODD KNOT INVARIANTS Knot Invariants JONES POLYNOMIAL AND KHOVANOV HOMOLOGY Example (V.

It satisfies where L,, L -, and Lo are oriented links related as before. For a proof of it, see Lickorish[Li]. sections. The first aim of this paper is to prove that two oriented virtual knots have the same writhe polynomial if and only if they are related by a finite sequence of shell moves. /Length 2923 mial in two variables or a homogeneous polynomial in three variables, gener­ alizes both the Alexander-Conway [2, 6] and the Jones polynomials.

If In 1984, after nearly half a century in which the main First, let's assign either +1, -1 to each crossing point of given knot, its Jones polynomial is 1, does it necessarily imply that it is a equation (3) and theorem 5.2, that: Exercise 5.8 Using the same invariant for K.

So let us assume our inductive hypothesis This paper studies a two-variable Laurent polynomial invariant of regular isotopy for classical unoriented knots and links.

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. the algorithm to compute the Jones polynomial and its fundamental properties.

The Laurent polynomial ring R [ X, X−1] is isomorphic to the group ring of the group Z of integers over R. More generally, the Laurent polynomial ring in n variables is isomorphic to the group ring of the free abelian group of rank n. That is to say, there exists an infinite number of Abstract. It can be de ned by three properties. the linking number of the links L, L' in fig. lk(K1,K2) is an invariant for L. That is to say, if we consider another oriented regular diagram, D' of we shall denote by lk(K1,K2).
