# IlliKnot: Visualizing Mathematical Knots in 3D

## Abstract

**Knot theory has surprisingly many uses in both pure and applied mathemathics.
It appears everywhere from topology to the study of knotted polymers such as DNA.
The goal of this project is to generate visually appealing meshes from numerical representations of knots
so that they may be rendered and 3D printed.**
