Twisting with Fibonacci
Article - Open Access
The Harvard College Mathematics Review
Determining when two links are equivalent is one of the central goals of knot theory. This paper describes the Conway polynomial, a link invariant that offers one approach to this problem. When calculating the Conway polynomial of the (n, 2) torus knots, we encounter the familiar patterns of Pascal's triangle and the Fibonacci sequence.
