Related to Topology, Knot Theory asks questions like: Is this (apparent) knot actually the same as that (apparent) knot? How can we be certain that a trefoil (for example) cannot, not matter what you do, ever be transformed into a figure-of-eight?

Knots turn up in all sorts of real-world applications, including genetics and astronomy.
