A knot is an embedding of a circle into three-dimensional space. The study of knots, and of the surfaces that they bound, has surprising connections to three and four-dimensional topology, to numerous parts of algebra, and even to theoretical physics. The talk will give a brief introduction first to knots themselves, and then to some of these wider connections.

This talk is part of the The Archimedeans (CU Mathematical Society) series.
