A KEW combinatorial formulation of the Jones polynomial of a link is used to establish some basic properties of this polynomial. A striking consequence of these properties is the result that a link admitting an alternating diagram with m crossings and with no “nugatory” crossing cannot be projected with fewer than m crossings. $1. ISTRODUCTION AND STATEklENT OF RESULTS This article is concerned with classical links, that is to say closed l-manifolds embedded piecewise-linearly in the oriented 3… CONTINUE READING
