Course Syllabus

Abstract

This students' research seminar is devoted to combinatorial problems arising in knot theory. The topics include finite order knot invariants, graph invariants, matroids, delta-matroids, integrable systems and their combinatorial solutions. Hopf algebras of various combinatorial species are studied. Seminar's participants give talks following resent research papers in the area and explaining results of their own.
