Knot and link complements enjoy a geometry of crystalline beauty, rigid enough that simple cut-and-paste techniques meet geometrical as well as topological needs, yet surprisingly complex in their inexhaustible variety. Just as a three-dimensional link is a collection of 1-sphere (circles) in a 3-sphere, a two-dimensional link is a collection of 0-spheres (pairs of… CONTINUE READING
