An Invariant of Virtual Trivalent Spatial Graphs

  title={An Invariant of Virtual Trivalent Spatial Graphs},
  author={Nancy C. Scherich and Sherilyn Tamagawa},
We create an invariant of virtual Y -oriented trivalent spatial graphs using colorings by virtual Niebrzydowski algebras. This paper generalizes the color invariants using virtual tribrackets and Niebrzydowski algebras by Nelson and Pico, and Graves, Nelson, and the second author. We provide usable data sets of Latin Cubes and virtual Niebrzydowski algebras for computational implementation.

Virtual tribrackets

Virtual tribrackets are introduced, an algebraic structure for coloring regions in the planar complement of an oriented virtual knot or link diagram, and it is shown that the invariant can distinguish certain virtual knots.

Niebrzydowski algebras and trivalent spatial graphs

We introduce Niebrzydowski algebras, algebraic structures with a ternary operation and a partially defined multiplication, with axioms motivated by the Reidemeister moves for [Formula: see

HOMFLY polynomial via an invariant of colored planar graphs

Virtual Spatial Graphs

Two natural generalizations of knot theory are the study of spatially embedded graphs, and Kauffman's theory of virtual knots. In this paper we combine these approaches to begin the study of virtual

Ribbon 2–knots, 1 + 1 = 2 and Duflo’s theorem for arbitrary Lie algebras

We explain a direct topological proof for the multiplicativity of Duflo isomorphism for arbitrary finite dimensional Lie algebras, and derive the explicit formula for the Duflo map. The proof follows

Virtual Knot Theory

This paper is an introduction to the theory of virtual knots. It is dedicated to the memory of Francois Jaeger.

On some ternary operations in knot theory

We introduce a way to color the regions of a classical knot diagram using ternary operations, so that the number of colorings is a knot invariant. By choosing appropriate substitutions in the
