Defined by Joyce and Matveev, the fundamental quandle is a complete invariant of oriented classical knots. We consider invariants of knots defined from quotients of the fundamental quandle. In particular, we introduce the fundamental Latin Alexander quandle of a knot and consider its Gr\"obner basis-valued invariants, which generalize the Alexander polynomial. We show via example that the invariant is not determined by the generalized Alexander polynomial for virtual knots. 
∆ -Tribrackets and Link Homotopy
We define a type of Niebrzydowski tribracket we call ∆ -tribrackets and show that their counting invariants are invariants of link-homotopy. We further identify several classes of tribrackets whose
$\Delta$-Tribrackets and Link Homotopy
We define a type of Niebrzydowski tribracket we call ∆ -tribrackets and show that their counting invariants are invariants of link-homotopy. We further identify several classes of tribrackets whose

Embeddings of quandles into groups
In this paper, we introduce the new construction of quandles. For a group [Formula: see text] and a subset [Formula: see text] of [Formula: see text] we construct a quandle [Formula: see text] which

Polynomial knot and link invariants from the virtual biquandle
The Alexander biquandle of a virtual knot or link is a module over a 2-variable Laurent polynomial ring which is an invariant of virtual knots and links. The elementary ideals of this module are then

Hom Quandles
If A is an abelian quandle and Q is a quandle, the hom set Hom(Q,A) of quandle homomorphisms from Q to A has a natural quandle structure. We exploit this fact to enhance the quandle counting
Virtual Biquandles
In the present paper, we describe new approaches for constructing virtual knot invariants. The main background of this paper comes from formulating and bringing together the ideas of biquandle [KR],
Algorithmic Invariants for Alexander Modules
TLDR
It is shown how to use Grobner bases as an algorithmic tool to compare the chains of elementary ideals defined by the matrix and to compute the elementary ideals of Alexander matrix of knots up to 11 crossings with the same Alexander polynomial.
