In this paper we suggest a soluiton to this question Does the existence of any nontrivially knotted closed trajectory for a field presents a positive lower bound for the energy and hence blocks the relaxation of the field into arbitrarily small energies

The asymptotic Hopf invariant and its applications
The classical Hopf invariant distinguishes among the homotopy classes of continuous mappings from the three-sphere to the two-sphere and is equal to the linking number of the two curves that are the

A group theoretical approach to hydrodynamics considers hydrodynamics to be the differential geometry of diffeomorphism groups. The principle of least action implies that the motion of a fluid is
