Written by an internationally known expert in the field, this volume will appeal to graduate students, mathematicians, and physicists with a mathematical background who lickoridh to gain new insights in this area. Readers are assumed to have knowledge of the basic ideas of the fundamental group and simple homology theory, although explanations throughout the text are plentiful and well done.

An Introduction To Knot Theory by Lickorish, W B Raymond
Boas Brian J. Lickorish gives a lot of insights via his choice of narrative arc through a rich subject area. In particular, a knowledge of the very basic ideas of the fundamental group and of a simple homology theory is assumed; it is, after all, more important to know about those topics than about the intricacies of knot theory.
What may reasonably be referred to as knot theory has expanded enormously over the last decade, and while the author describes important discoveries from throughout the twentieth century, the latest discoveries such as quantum invariants of 3-manifolds – as well as generalisations and applications of the Jones polynomial – are also included, presented in an easily understandable style.

Thanks for telling us about the problem. Gillette marked it as to-read Dec 06, Add both to Cart Add both to List. This account is an teory to mathematical knot theory, the theory of knots and links of simple closed curves in three-dimensional space.
It provides complete and tbeory proofs without getting bogged down in too much detail. They can be admired as artifacts of the decorative arts and crafts, or viewed as accessible intimations of a geometrical sophistication that may never be attained. Lickorish in Berkeley in Gordon and David L.
One reason why finite type invariants are so interesting is that they are intimately connected to Lie algebras via their weight systems. Davis Leon Henkin Jack K.
