I'd have to look up function curves (this is like, parabolas????) and probably other stuff that I don't understand.

How would you limit the curves, and continue them, since the knot's supposed to be endless? (like, in a graphing program or something. use a parameter?)

So far behind...allons-y...!

Okay...so actually, the picture I have is the 8-18 knot (AKA a Carrick mat. that's decorative in knot tying, but the 8-18 is knot theory. Ha!) So...stuff about knot theory, it looks like, and who discovered it, when, etc. and then, keep going with the whole distance thing if that works out!

So...thinking about old symbols, like the eternal knot.

I'm working alone.


Later: so...basic explanation: okay, so it's four circles and a square (the equations of circles and lines, etc.)

more detailed: more math. also, maybe how the distance between the circles affects the knot...yeah.


may 22: go into the basic mathematical definition of a knot. Is the eternal knot technically a mathematical knot (since it's not all circles? Maybe find another image with curves.) Also...history behind the knot maybe. If I do find another picture of the knot, talk about links? (this is knot theory...http://www.oglethorpe.edu/faculty/~j_nardo/knots/intro.htm makes it fairly simple. ish. maybe some basic stuff about this in the more mathematical explanation.)

Then, keep going with the stuff that Diana said? ( it'd be super cool if I could make an animation showing the distance between the lines increasing and decreasing.)
