Short description:

Knots unravelled is a brief introduction to the world of knots at a basic level.

Only with the intuitive concept of knot, it addresses the fundamental question of whether two knots are equal or different. It introduces several knots invariants: crossing number, unknotting number, linking number, three-colourability, and the Jones polynomial. A bunch of examples of knots are explored and distinguished with these invariants.
