Will bury you, and go wondering
Back home. And you will rot.

In science:
By deﬁnition of OT S, O cannot contain both crossings of the positive 2-group of the rots tangle.
Enumerating the Prime Alternating Knots, Part I
If O contained one crossing of the positive 2-group of the rots tangle, then O must contain the third crossing of the rots tangle as well, but in such a case, the application of OT S to O would result in a negative 2-group in C (K ).
Enumerating the Prime Alternating Knots, Part I
Since this is not possible, O cannot contain either crossing of the positive 2-group of the rots tangle.
Enumerating the Prime Alternating Knots, Part I
By Theorem 6, there is a ﬁnite sequence of ots and/or t operations that will transform G into a minimal loop with either a 2-group one of whose edges is a boundary edge of the minimal loop, or with two 2-groups having a vertex in common, or a rots-triangle.
Enumerating the Prime Alternating Knots, Part I
However, in such a case, the ots-triangle would be such that two of its vertices were actually vertices of a 2-group in the knot conﬁguration, whence the knot conﬁguration would be a rots tangle.
Enumerating the Prime Alternating Knots, Part I
Let us start with C (K ) and follow the sequence of ots and/or t operations which will transform G into a minimal loop with either a 2-group one of whose edges is a boundary edge of the minimal loop, or with two 2-groups having a vertex in common, or a rots-triangle.
Enumerating the Prime Alternating Knots, Part I
Otherwise, C (Kn ) is a KC conﬁguration, whence it contains no rots tangles.
Enumerating the Prime Alternating Knots, Part I
Now, since C (Kn ) is a KC conﬁguration, it does not contain any 3-groups nor rots 6-tangles, nor any negative groups, so we must have obtained a minimal loop containing a positive 2-group H with one of its edges on the boundary of the minimal loop.
Enumerating the Prime Alternating Knots, Part I
Of the four, the two called D and ROT S were simply speciﬁc instances of the general splicing operation (see Calvo for an extensive discussion of the splicing operation). A form of D was also used by H. de Fraysseix and P.
Enumerating the Prime Alternating Links
We show that the set of subsets of R/Z which are of the form rot(X (G, α)) = {r ∈ R/Z | r = rot(ρ(α)), ρ ∈ Hom(G, Homeo+ (S 1 ))} where G varies over countable groups, are exactly the set of closed subsets which contain 0 and are invariant under x → −x.
Dynamical forcing of circular groups
Moreover, we show that every such subset can be approximated from above by rot(X (Gi, αi )) for ﬁnitely presented Gi .
Dynamical forcing of circular groups
G → Homeo+ (S 1 ), and rot denotes the rotation number of an element of Homeo+ (S 1 ), as de ﬁned by Poincar ´e.
Dynamical forcing of circular groups
We determine exactly which subsets rot(X (G, α)) can occur, and show that they de ﬁne a topology on R/Z called the representation topology.
Dynamical forcing of circular groups
The set of subsets of S 1 of the form rot(X (G, α)) where G varies over all countable groups, and α ∈ G is arbitrary, are precisely the nonempty closed subsets of a topology, called the representation topology.
Dynamical forcing of circular groups
Say that a number θ ∈ R/Z is forceable if rot(X (G, α)) = {0 ∪ ±θ} for some ﬁnitely presented group G.
