Computable invariants for links in the three-torus

Masoudian, Sahar


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]
