DT Name


The Dowker-Thistlethwaite name of a knot is based on the lexicographical ordering of the minimal DT notation for the knot. We have used "a" and "n" to distinguish the alternating and nonalternating knots. The orientation conventions seem to assume that the first crossing is right handed. These names were used here for the name of 11 crossing knots, while the classical names were used for 10 crossing and less knots.
