Knots and Their Polynomials
The calculation of the Jones polynomial of the right trefoil
The next step is to analyze that link by the same method.t-1[t] - t [t] =(t1/2 - t-1/2) [t].
This time the knot on the right is topologically an unknot: =,so [t] = 1,
which gives[t] =t3/2 - t1/2 + t2 [t].
On to the next step.
Back to the previous step.
