Rivin, Igor (ed.) et al., The Epstein Birthday Schrift dedicated to David Epstein on the occasion of his 60th birthday. Warwick: University of Warwick, Institute of Mathematics, Geom. Topol. Monogr. 1, 365-381 (1998).
Summary: Details of quantum knot invariant calculations using a specific $$SU(3)_q$$-module are given which distinguish the Conway and Kinoshita-Teresaka pair of mutant knots. Features of Kuperberg’s skein-theoretic techniques for $$SU(3)_q$$ invariants in the context of mutant knots are also discussed.
For the entire collection see [Zbl 0901.00063].
