Public Event: International Women in Maths Day!

Title: Rewards for relating the unrelated: knots, graphs, and algebra


What does the mathematics of knots have to do with the mathematics of networks?

Knots are everywhere: in the strings of our DNA, in the structure of super-strong

materials, and in mathematics, where knots lurk behind all three-dimensional

shapes. Graphs model social networks, transit maps, neural nets, and are one of

the most basic objects in modern combinatorics. What do they have to do with each

other? And how can we use algebra - the science of numbers, operations, and

structure - to solve mysteries about both?
