Highly Influenced

We establish a fundamental connection between smooth and polygonal knot energies, showing that the Minimum Distance Energy for polygons inscribed in a smooth knot converges to the Möbius Energy of the smooth knot as the polygons converge to the smooth knot. However, the polygons must converge in a “nice” way, and the energies must be correctly regularized… (More)
