Many knot invariants are known to extend to invariants of virtual knots. It is not quite trivial to prove the existence of an invariant satisfying this denition, but as soon as this fact is established, the computation of the Conway polynomial becomes fairly easy.

Many knot invariants are known to extend to invariants of virtual knots. Knots in arbitrary manifolds.

Mathematics Geometric Topology. Chmutov, S. Duzhin, J. Mostovoy. Submitted on 24 Mar 2011 (v1), last revised 21 Sep 2011 (this version, v3)). Abstract: This book is a detailed introduction to the theory of finite type (Vassiliev) knot invariants, with a stress on its combinatorial aspects. It is intended to serve both as a textbook for readers with no or little background in this area, and as a guide to some of the more advanced material.

This book is a detailed introduction to the theory of finite type (Vassiliev) knot invariants, with a stress on its combinatorial aspects  .

We learn early on that Victor Vassiliev was working on determinants in spaces of smooth maps when he discovered his invariants, and it was none other than the late V. I. Arnol’d who grasped the topological angle on these objects, he also being the one who christened them Vassiliev invariants. Vassiliev’s definition of finite type invariants is based on the observation that knots form a topological space and knot invariants can be thought of as the locally constant functions on this space.

With hundreds of worked examples, exercises and illustrations, this detailed exposition of the theory of Vassiliev knot invariants opens the field to students with little or no knowledge in this area. It also serves as a guide to more advanced material. The book begins with a basic and informal introduction to knot theory, giving many examples of knot invariants before the class of Vassiliev invariants is introduced. This is followed by a detailed study of the algebras of Jacobi diagrams and 3-graphs, and the construction of functions on these algebras via Lie algebras. The authors then describe two constructions of a universal invariant with values in the algebra of Jacobi diagrams: via iterated integrals and via the Drinfeld associator, and extend the theory to framed knots. Various other topics are then discussed, such as Gauss diagram formulae, before the book ends with Vassiliev's original construction.
Reviews:
  • Skyway
Not too happy about the reference at page 49 to "old Perko's notation," but that's just me. (Also, Fermat, mentioned at page 10, was not much of a lawyer, having used his father's money to buy a life-long provincial judgeship.) Clearly the book is an essential acquisition for anyone in the field and should provide great recreational value for reading on long airplane flights.

Only book on my research topic, but still best book on my research topic.
