**Jones polynomial** — In the mathematical field of knot theory, the Jones polynomial is a knot polynomial discovered by Vaughan Jones in 1983. Specifically, it is an invariant of an oriented knot or link which assigns to each oriented knot or link a Laurent polynomial … Wikipedia

**Tait conjectures** — The Tait conjectures are conjectures made by Peter Guthrie Tait in his study of knots. The Tait conjectures involve concepts in knot theory such as alternating knots, chirality, and writhe. All of the Tait conjectures have been solved, the most… … Wikipedia

**Chiral knot** — In the mathematical field of knot theory, a chiral knot is a knot that is not equivalent to its mirror image. An oriented knot that is equivalent to its mirror image is an amphichiral knot, also called an achiral knot or amphicheiral knot. The… … Wikipedia
