Knots and Links on the Klein Bottle

Pure Math Research Team

Team:  Henry Potts-Rubin '20 and Isaac Weiss '20

Advisors: Jennifer Bowen and Robert Kelvey (Mathematics)

This project was an evolution of previous AMRE work that looked into knots and links on the Klein bottle.  We expanded this research by studying links on the real projective plane (RP2), something that had not been previously explored.  Our main results include the discovery of equivalencies between certain classes of RP2 links, as well as some generic braid words.
