Drawing knot pictures using LATEXwith XY-pic - An introduction and tutorial

Lars Fischer1

Date: January 2003

Abstract: XY-pic is a TEX-macro package for typesetting graphs and diagrams. It is very modular and there is support for typesetting mathematical knots and links. XY-pic's documentation consists of a User's-Guide [Ros99] and a Reference Manual [RM99] available on XY-pic's homepage [Ros]. Unfortunately the knot feature is not covered in detail and (not only) this section is missing some basic examples.

This text is not intended to replace [RM99] or [Ros99]. I want to introduce the knots and link feature under LATEX and more important I want to give some examples.
