What may reasonably be referred to as knot theory has expanded enormously over the last decade, inyroduction while the author describes important discoveries from throughout the twentieth century, the latest discoveries such as quantum invariants of 3-manifolds – as well as generalisations and applications of the Jones polynomial – are also included, presented in an easily understandable style.
