This work contributes to our knowledge of a type of crystal called rod packings by
viewing them as links in the three-torus and computing the fundamental group of
their complementary space, which is a topological invariant for these structures.
Topological notions play an important role in chemistry. Chemists need the topological properties of crystalline materials for better understanding of their connectivity and classification [Ockwig et al., 2005].
We extend some standard invariants in...[Show more]
