During the last 20-30 years, knot concept has rekindled its ancient ties with biology, chemistry, and physics as a method of making extra refined descriptions of the entanglements and homes of traditional phenomena--from strings to natural compounds to DNA. This quantity is predicated at the 2008 AMS brief path, functions of Knot concept. the purpose of the quick direction and this quantity, whereas no longer overlaying all elements of utilized knot thought, is to supply the reader with a mathematical appetizer, with a purpose to stimulate the mathematical urge for food for extra examine of this interesting box. No previous wisdom of topology, biology, chemistry, or physics is thought. specifically, the 1st 3 chapters of this quantity introduce the reader to knot conception (by Colin Adams), topological chirality and molecular symmetry (by Erica Flapan), and DNA topology (by Dorothy Buck). the second one half this quantity is targeted on 3 specific purposes of knot concept. Louis Kauffman discusses purposes of knot idea to physics, Nadrian Seeman discusses how topology is utilized in DNA nanotechnology, and Jonathan Simon discusses the statistical and vigorous houses of knots and their relation to molecular biology
