I am wondering if it's possible to either algorithmically generate or access a built in database of n-torus knots in Mathematica? If not, are there any known databases or algorithms which I could access?

  • $\begingroup$ I'd like to be able to compute the crossing number and Alexander polynomials, it doesn't seem like this does it, but I may be wrong. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Thank you for the suggestion with the KnotData commmand. It doesn't seem like it is possible to generate two-torus, or for this matter n-torus knots. Are there any known methods or commands? Thanks $\endgroup$
