In science:
Steps 2 and 4 make use of the Jaco-Rubinstein crushing process, which modiﬁes a triangulation by “destructively” crushing a normal surface within it.
A fast branching algorithm for unknot recognition with experimental polynomial-time behaviour
Given a normal surface S within a triangulation T, we cut T open along S and then crush all of the triangles and quadrilaterals of S (which now appear twice each on the boundary) to points.
A fast branching algorithm for unknot recognition with experimental polynomial-time behaviour
A key result of Jaco and Rubinstein is that, if S is a sphere or a disc and the underlying 3-manifold is suﬃciently simple, then any topological changes that result from this crushing are of limited types, and can be easily detected.
A fast branching algorithm for unknot recognition with experimental polynomial-time behaviour
To obtain the O(n) running time, we perform the crushing process as follows.
A fast branching algorithm for unknot recognition with experimental polynomial-time behaviour
We then identify how their faces are glued together after crushing, by following chains of tetrahedra through T that do not survive (i.e., do contain quadrilaterals of S ).
A fast branching algorithm for unknot recognition with experimental polynomial-time behaviour
If, after crushing, any connected component of the resulting triangulation has torus boundary then we can take this as the new triangulation T ′ .
A fast branching algorithm for unknot recognition with experimental polynomial-time behaviour
Because S is not the vertex link, it contains at least one quadrilateral and so crushing will strictly reduce the number of tetrahedra.
A fast branching algorithm for unknot recognition with experimental polynomial-time behaviour
There are two stages: (i) the Jaco-Rubinstein crushing process, and (ii) extracting the connected component with torus boundary (if any).
A fast branching algorithm for unknot recognition with experimental polynomial-time behaviour
This is enough to distinguish between components with torus boundary (χ = 0) and sphere boundary (χ = 1), which from earlier are the only possible scenarios after crushing.
A fast branching algorithm for unknot recognition with experimental polynomial-time behaviour
Our remaining task is to show that the Jaco-Rubinstein crushing process can be carried out in O(n) time.
A fast branching algorithm for unknot recognition with experimental polynomial-time behaviour
It is simple to identify which tetrahedra of T survive the crushing process (those whose corresponding quadrilateral coordinates in S are all zero)—the challenge is to identify how the faces of these surviving tetrahedra are to be glued together.
A fast branching algorithm for unknot recognition with experimental polynomial-time behaviour
Each step in such a path takes O(1) time to compute (since all we need to know is which, if any, of the three quadrilateral coordinates is non-zero in the next tetrahedron), and so the gluings in the ﬁnal crushed triangulation can be computed in total O(n) time.
A fast branching algorithm for unknot recognition with experimental polynomial-time behaviour
Given such a surface, Lemma 5 shows that we can crush it in O(n) time to obtain a new triangulation of K with strictly fewer tetrahedra.
A fast branching algorithm for unknot recognition with experimental polynomial-time behaviour
Ideally we would take S to be the surface “immediately surrounding” e (that is, the frontier of a regular neighbourhood of e); then crushing S would have the effect of crushing the edge e itself, as illustrated earlier in Figure 9.
A fast branching algorithm for unknot recognition with experimental polynomial-time behaviour
It is well known that the global market is far from being at equilibrium, the collective behavior of the market can occasionally have violent bursts (rallies or crushes) and these violent events follow some empirically well established scaling laws.
