The Knot Atlas

Welcome to the Knot Atlas! This site aims to be a complete user-editable knot atlas, in the wiki spirit of Wikipedia. It is being developed primarily by Scott and Dror, but any one can edit almost anything, anytime. Some advice can be found at how you can contribute.

As with all evolving projects, the most important part of the Knot Atlas is the To Do list.
