Description

Knot theory is an actively developing branch of geometry and topology. Modern knot theory includes the study of knots in thickened surfaces and other three-dimensional manifolds, notoids, and knotted graphs. It is characterized by a combination of methods of three-dimensional topology, algebraic topology, group theory, representation theory, and non-Euclidean geometry.

The purpose of the conference is to present new results and discuss open problems related to current trends in knot theory.

Main topics:

  • Properties and invariants of classical and virtual knots
  • Geometric structures on three-dimensional manifolds
  • Braid groups and quandles, Yang-Baxter equations
  • Applications of knot theory

The conference will be the 10th anniversary in the ongoing series of the Russian-Chinese conferences on knot theory and related topics, which are held alternately in China and Russia.

Participants

Speakers are invited by the organizers in agreement with the Program committee. The Sirius Mathematics Center will provide invited participants with accommodation including breakfast in hotels in the town of Sirius near Sochi. If you would like to give a talk, please contact Nikolay Abrosimov.

The organizers encourage undergraduate and graduate students studying in physics and mathematics to make a presentation and take an active part in the conference.
