This booklet offers a amazing program of graph thought to knot idea. In knot thought, there are various simply outlined geometric invariants which are tremendous tough to compute; the braid index of a knot or hyperlink is one instance. The authors review the braid index for lots of knots and hyperlinks utilizing the generalized Jones polynomial and the index of a graph, a brand new invariant brought right here. This invariant, that is made up our minds algorithmically, is perhaps of specific curiosity to machine scientists.
