sometimes i really love math

my group was working on this project today, about the images of circles under polynomials, which is in turn a proof of the fundamental theorem of algebra, and we were looking at curvature and trying to find an easy to way to calculate it, so we were doing some steps and counting loops when it occurred to us: "these are the Reidemeister moves! This is knot theory! \o/"
