### Product Details

In this topology text, the reader will learn about knot theory, 3-dimensional manifolds, and the topology of embedded graphs, while learning the role these play in understanding molecular structures. Most of the results that are described in the text are motivated by questions asked by chemists or molecular biologists, though the results themselves often go beyond answering the original question asked. There is no specific mathematical or chemical prerequisite; all the relevant background is provided. The text is enhanced by nearly 200 illustrations and more than 100 exercises. Contents: Stereochemical Topology; Detecting Chirality; Mobius Ladders and Related Molecular Graphs; Different Types of Chirality and Achirality; Intrinsic Topological Properties of Graphs; Symmetries of Embedded Graphs; Topology of DNA.
