2018-03-26 08:03:50 -0500 | asked a question | problems with gauss code for knots I am generating Gauss-codes for knots, and I would like to compute some of their invariants (e.g. knot polynomials). However, I am running in some problems. For example:
Is recognized as a knot (I can compute the fundamental group, the writhe and the Seifert circles, and tell if it is alternating), but If I try to compute the Alexander polynomial:
I get the following error:
I think the problem is in the translation from Gauss code to an element in the braid group. Moreover, I get similar errors with other examples, also with really simple ones. Any idea on how to solve this? Thanks in Advance! |
