An ubercrossing diagram is a knot diagram with only one crossing that may involve more than two strands of the knot. Such a diagram without any nested loops is called a petal projection. Every knot has a petal projection from which the knot can be recovered using a permutation that represents strand heights. Using this permutation, we give an algorithm that determines the $p$-colorability and the determinants of knots from their petal projections. In particular, we compute the determinants of… Expand

An n-crossing is a singular point in a projection of a link at which n strands cross such that each strand travels straight through the crossing. We introduce the notion of an ubercrossing… Expand

An $n$-crossing is a point in the projection of a knot where $n$ strands cross so that each strand bisects the crossing. An \"ubercrossing projection has a single $n$-crossing and a petal projection… Expand

This project presents some basic concepts and results of knot theory, including important definitions and basic concepts, and develops some combinatorial techniques, including tricolorability and the linking number.Expand

These are the first precise formulas given for the distributions and higher moments of invariants in any model for random knots or links in R3 using the Petaluma model.Expand
