Database: Quandle Cocycle Knot Invariants. This link will allow you to create a table of quandle cocycle knot invariant values that you choose.
This section contains various programs and data files used for calculating quandle cocycle knot invariants.Programs
This section contains applications obtained by using computational results developed in the above programs.Applications
These pages are created and maintained by Masahico Saito and Chad Smudde, with help from Scott Carter and Mohamed Elhamdadi. Calculations are based on polynomial cocycles studied by Kheira Ameur in her Ph.D. Dissertation (Dec. 2006, USF). An application in tangle embeddings was a team project, and Tom Rose was a member.
