I’ll tell you about some extremely clever methods to tell graphs and knots apart, involving polynomials: the Tutte and HOMFLY polynomials. And they’re closely related.
In which I attempt to explain some of the ideas behind the h-principle.
You might not think that an academic computer science course could be classified as an export of military technology.
