The aim of this book is to present recent results in both theoretical and applied knot theory—which are at the same time stimulating for leading researchers in the ﬁeld as well as accessible to non-experts. The book comprises recent research results while covering a wide range of diﬀerent sub-disciplines, such as the young ﬁeld of geometric knot theory, combinatorial knot theory, as well as applications in microbiology and theoretical physics.
