Knot Theory: Editing and Programming [Research Assistantship]

Department: Mathematics
Professor Jozef Przytycki

Duties: Students under my supervision will be involved in tasks as below:

1. Student would assist in preparing/editing research paper for arXiv submission (and eventual publication). Student has to learn LaTeX and how to draw figures in xfig or other similar

2. Many invariants of graphs and knots require pattern testing which require to wrote simple (or not that simple) programs. Also programs are needed to analyze simple algebraic structures related to knots.

I assume student would assist me 4-6 hours a week (2 credit) but I am flexible, so more, or less is possible.

Time commitment/Credits: 4-6 hours per week (average); 2 credits
