This Atlas is partially (and indirectly) supported by NSERC grant RGPIN 262178. As a Wiki project, it doesn't make sense anymore to acknowledge individual contributors. Yet for historical purposes, here's our acknowledgement as of the conversion to Wiki formnat on August 2005:

- Jana Archibald, for writing the program
`Alexander[K, r]`

. - Sergei Chmutov, for spotting a typo.
- David De Wit, for a bug report.
- Ralph Furmaniak, for help with our link to Knotilus (see Gauss Codes).
- Stavros Garoufalidis, for jointly writing the program ColouredJones (see The Coloured Jones Polynomials).
- Thomas Gittings, for the minimum braid representatives for the knots with up to 10 crossings (see Braid Representatives).
- Jeremy Green, for his java implementation of
`Kh`

(see Khovanov Homology). - Thang Le, for supplying some of the formulas used in the program ColouredJones (see The Coloured Jones Polynomials).
- Rick Litherland, for spotting a sneaky bug in the program
`KnotSignature`

. - Charles Livingston, for allowing us to bundle data from his Table of Knot Invariants.
- Scott Morrison, for a bug report and for writing the programs to compute the HOMFLY-PT and Kauffman polynomials (see The HOMFLY-PT Polynomial and The Kauffman Polynomial).
- Bertrand Patureau-Mirand, for informing us of some mismatches in the link tables (now corrected).
- Jozef Przytycki, for correcting a typo.
- Stuart Rankin, for help with our link to Knotilus (see Gauss Codes).
- Emily Redelmeier, for writing the program DrawPD (see Drawing Planar Diagrams).
- Siddarth Sankaran, for writing the conversion program between Gauss codes and PD codes and for writing MorseLink and DrawMorseLink.
- Alexander Shumakovitch, for his help with signature computations (see The Determinant and the Signature).
- Alexander Stoimenow, for the knot presentations for the knots in the Rolfsen table and some further remarks.
- Z-X. Tao, for noticing problems with the knots 10_83 and 10_86.
- Morwen Thistlethwaite, for the pictures of links and of 11 crossing knots.
- Dylan Thurston, for writing an early routine to translate from Hoste-Thistlethwaite's DT codes to my "PD Presentations".
