Greg Kuperberg: It is in NP to Tell if a Knot is Knotted! (under GRH!)
Wolfgang Haken found an algorithm to tell if a knot is trivial, and, more generally with Hemion, if two knots are equivalent. Joel Hass, Jeff Lagarias and Nick Pippinger proved in 1999 that telling that a knot is unknotted is … Continue reading
