Algebraic Knot Theory - Poly-Time Computations

Department of Mathematics, University of Toronto, Spring 2017

Agenda. Group-discover and group-implement the strongest ever truly computable knot invariant; along the way, learn some of the why (topology!), what (Lie theory!), and how (Mathematica!). Leave behind a complete documentation trail.

Alternatively, "understand everything in http://drorbn.net/GWU-1612/, and beat it".

Instructor: Dror Bar-Natan, drorbn@math.toronto.edu, Bahen 6178, 416-946-5438. Office hours: by appointment.

Classes. Tuesdays 11-1 and Fridays 11-12 at Bahen 6180. Also a "HW meeting", covering no new material, on Fridays at 6:10PM at or near my office.
