Webinar on Wild Knots

The Webinar on Wild Knots took place on Friday, June 4th, 2021 from 5 pm until 6 pm, with Aubin Arroyo, Researcher in the Cuernavaca Unit of the Institute of Mathematics of the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM), as our invited speaker. This virtual event was free and open to the general public.

The invited speaker presented on knots and explained what the diagram of a knot is and how the same knot can have different diagrams. Aubin Arroyo then introduced the Reidemeister moves and the concept of the tricolorability of a knot, and defined wild knots. The speaker also mentioned that Knot Theory is the area of mathematics that studies and classifies knots and highlighted the incredible sculptures of wild knots by Jean-Michel Othoniel. This virtual event was co-organized with the Mexican Mathematical Society (SMM).
