Basic Description
In knot theory, a torus knot is a special kind of knot which lies on the surface of an unknotted torus in R3.
A More Mathematical Explanation
- Note: understanding of this explanation requires: *Differential Geometry
These knots lie on the following torus of revolution (having
ellipses as meridian curves):

These knots lie on the following torus of revolution (having
ellipses as meridian curves):
The knots are obtained by putting , . The parameters and should be integers, and the result is referred to as a (dd,ee) knot (The program used to make the image rounds dd and ee before using them.)
