DESCRIPTION:Random curves in space and how they are knotted gi
ve an insight into the behaviour of "typical" knot
s and links. They have been studied by biologists
and physicists in the context of the structure of
random polymers. There have been many results obta
ined via computational experiment\, but few explic
it computations. \nIn work with Hass\, Linial and
Nowik\, we study random knots based on petal proje
ctions\, developped by Adams et al. (20120. We hav
e found explicit formulas for the distribution of
the linking number of a two component link. We als
o find formulas for the moments of two finite inva
riants of knots\, the Casson invariant and another
coefficient of the Jones polynomial.\nNo backgrou
nd in Knot Theory will be supposed. All the terms
above will be explained.\n\nJoint work with Joel H
ass\, Nati Linial and Tahl Nowik.
