    The book is divided into two parts: Part I is a systematic course on knots and physics starting from the ground up, and Part II is a set of lectures on various topics related to Part I. Part II includes topics such as frictional properties of knots, relations 1/5(2). Energy-minimized smooth and polygonal knots, from the ming knot evolver, Y. Wu, U. Iowa. KnotPlot. Pictures of knots and links, from Robert Scharein at UBC. Knots on the Web, P. Suber. Includes sections on knot tying and knot art as well as knot theory. Mathematical imagery by Jos Leys. Knots, Escher tilings, spirals, fractals, circle.   This paper is a review of open-closed rational conformal field theory (CFT) via the theory of vertex operator algebras (VOAs), together with a proposal of a new geometry based on CFTs and D-branes. We will start with an outline of the idea of the new geometry, followed by some philosophical background behind this vision. a scalar value (energy) with a knot which can also be used to distin- guish among various knot types. Typically, the energy will depend on the geometry of the knot and will vary as the knot undergoes iso- topic (i.e., type-preserving) transformations. Therefore, it has been.

The energies presented in the book are defined geometrically. In mathematics, conformal geometry is the study of the set of angle-preserving transformations on a space. In a real two dimensional space, conformal geometry is precisely the geometry of Riemann space higher than two dimensions, conformal geometry may refer either to the study of conformal transformations of what are called "flat spaces" (such as Euclidean.

The main invariant in conformal geometry is the angle between two directions. Conformal geometry is the geometry defined in Euclidean space extended by a single (ideal) point at infinity having as corresponding fundamental group of transformations the group of point transformations taking spheres into spheres.

Knots in real physical systems, be they rope or DNA loops, have real physical properties; that is a truism. The behavior of physical knots depends on the topological types of the knots; that is an experimental observation. Mathematical differences between knot types and, more generally, the whole body of knot theory should help explain the physical behavior; that Cited by: 2.

Space curves have a variety of uses within mathematics, and much attention has been paid to calculating quantities related to such objects. The quantities of curvature and energy are of particular interest to us.

I would recommend the book Introduction to Conformal Field theory by Blumenhagen and Plauschinn. It is quite sort and can serve as a perfect introduction to CFT. It covers the basics of CFT in the first 3 chapters and then in the remaining 3 it goes on to introduce the CFT concepts that will appear most frequently in String theory.
