My topological emphasis
My Topological Emphasis:

General Topology (Point-Set Topology)

Mappings and Equivalences


Vertex, Edge, Face:

Connectivity

Euler Operations

Thesis: M. Mantyla; “Computational Topology …”, 1983.


Contemporary influences
Contemporary Influences

  • Grimm: Manifolds, charts, blending functions

  • Blackmore: differential sweeps

  • Kopperman, Herman: Digital topology

  • Edelsbrunner, Zomordian, Carlsson : Algebraic



Comparing knots
Comparing Knots

  • Reduced two to simplest forms

  • Need for equivalence

  • Approximation as operation in geometric design



Bad

Approximation!

Self-intersect?


Why Bad?

No

Intersections!

Changes

Knot Type

Now has 4

Crossings


Good

Approximation!

Respects Embedding

Via

Curvature (local)

Separation (global)

But recognizing unknot in NP (Hass, L, P, 1998)!!


Nsf workshop 1999 for design
NSF Workshop 1999 for Design

  • Organized by D. R. Ferguson & R. Farouki

  • SIAM News: Danger of self-intersections

  • Crossings not detected by algorithms

  • Would appear as intersections in projections

  • Strong criterion for ‘lights-out’ manufacturing


Summary key ideas
Summary – Key Ideas

  • Space Curves: intersection versus crossing

  • Local and global arguments

  • Knot equivalence via isotopy

  • Extensions to surfaces



Theorem: If an approximation of F has a unique intersection with each normalof F, then it is ambient isotopic to F.

Proof:

1. Local argument with curvature.

2. Global argument for separation.

(Similar to flow on normal field.)


Good with each normal

Approximation!

Respects Embedding

Curvature (local)

Separation (global)

But recognizing unknot in NP (Hass, L, P, 1998)!!


Global separation with each normal


Mathematical generalizations
Mathematical Generalizations with each normal

  • Equivalence classes:

    • Knot theory: isotopies & knots

    • General topology: homeomorphisms & spaces

    • Algebra: homorphisms & groups

  • Manifolds (without boundary or with boundary)
