Tools for identifying and analysing knots, in space-curves or standard topological representations

## Project description

Python (and optional Cython) modules for detecting and measuring knotting and linking. pyknotid can analyse space-curves, i.e. sets of points in three-dimensions, or can parse standard topological representations of knot diagrams.

A graphical interface to some of these tools is available online at Knot ID.

pyknotid was developed as part of the Leverhulme Trust Research Programme Grant RP2013-K-009: Scientific Properties of Complex Knots (SPOCK), a collaboration between the University of Bristol and Durham University in the UK. For more information, see the SPOCK homepage.
