Three-dimensional entanglement, including knots, periodic arrays of woven filaments (weavings) and periodic arrays of interpenetrating networks (nets), forms an integral part of the analysis of structure within the natural sciences. This thesis constructs a catalogue of 3-periodic entanglements via a scaffold of Triply-Periodic Minimal Surfaces (TPMS). The two-dimensional Hyperbolic plane can be wrapped over a TPMS in much the same way as the two-dimensional Euclidean plane can be wrapped...[Show more]
