Product details Format Hardback pages Dimensions x x Before saying anything else I must tell you that I am a physicist and so I have not try to understand every proof to kot proposition, lemma and theorem but just to read it as a novel learning facts here and there. William Bernard Raymond Lickorish born 19 February is a mathematician.

This page was last edited on 7 Novemberat The aim will be to find invariants that distinguish knots, to investigate geometric properties of knots and to see something of the way they interact with more adventurous three-dimensional topology. A new and very surprising extension of the Jones polynomial using homological algebra.
