Randomly Sampling Grid Diagrams of a Knot

Student-Run Applied & Math Seminar

Speaker: Shawn Witte
Location: 2112 MSB
Start time: Wed, Mar 1 2017, 12:10PM

Random knotting can be useful for studying biological knots and geometric trends of knots. Grid diagrams are used here to generate random conformations of knots to inform a hypothesis about chiral knots.
