Real Algebraic Knots of Low Degree

Abstract [en]

In this paper we study rational real algebraic knots in RP3. We show that two real algebraic knots of degree d<6 are rigidly isotopic if and only if their degrees and encomplexed writhes are equal. We also show that any irreducible smooth knot which admits a plane projection with less than or equal to four crossings has a rational parametrization of degree d<7. Furthermore an explicit construction of rational knots of a given degree with arbitrary encomplexed writhe (subject to natural restrictions) is presented.
