Knot forms anticipate symmetries of lower and higher dimension
« on: February 24, 2013, 08:19:33 PM »
The spatial symmetry of Rolfsen 9_40 (True Carrick Invert) and planar symmetry of Rolfsen 8_18 (Carrick Mat) are suggestive.  A linear  symmetry exists in Rolfsen 7_4.  Higher order symmetries do not seem excluded in knots of 10  or more crossings.

Hi Stagehand.

Is this an answer to something or just an out there statement?

I'll note yet again that the question of exactly what
Stagehand believes is his "True Carrick Bend" is out there
--raised here for the third time.  I have Warner's book and
image #478, and the question is how Stagehand sets that.
