|The Only Undergraduate Textbook to Teach Both Classical and Virtual Kt Theory An Invitation to Kt Theory: Virtual and Classical gives advanced undergraduate students a gentle introduction to the field of virtual kt theory and mathematical research. It provides the foundation for students to research kt theory and read journal articles on their own. Each chapter includes numerous examples, problems, projects, and suggested readings from research papers. The proofs are written as simply as possible using combinatorial approaches, equivalence classes, and linear algebra. The text begins with an introduction to virtual kts and counted invariants. It then covers the rmalized f-polymial (Jones polymial) and other skein invariants before discussing algebraic invariants, such as the quandle and biquandle. The book concludes with two applications of virtual kts: textiles and quantum computation.|
