TI - Computing the braid index using only a knot diagram and knots where the braid index equals the bridge index
LA - eng
M3 - Moving Image
AB - We talk about how to read the braid index of certain families of alternating knots from a minimal knot diagram. In addition we talk about a class of knots where the braid index equals the bridge index.
These knots seem to have particular physical properties as demonstrated by
several experiments. They undergo a periodic motion when sedimenting in a viscous fluid as knotted deformable closed
chains, they also seem to achieve a circular minimum as elastic knots when their bending energy (curvature) is minimized.
