JMU 2003 REU Knot Theory Projects and Information

Official Program Information

Welcome to JMU! The "introductory projects" below should give you a basic but broad understanding of knot theory, as well as a chance to start working together.
Keep k-alternating knots and/or p-colorability in mind while working on these projects; you may make some connections that will help you in your research.
