Event Navigation

Imagine tying up your shoelaces into a knot.  How can we measure the difficulty of unknotting this mess?  In this talk, we will study mathematical knots and various measurements of their complexity with a view towards efficient unknotting.  This talk should be accessible to all undergraduates.
