One way of showing knottedness of the Trefoil

Filed under: knots,Mathematics,supplemental on knots — Rob burchett @ 6:53 pm

I place the trefoil, partially back together then move the four joinings through the reformed 2 and 3 sharings until they can possibly form a new diagram. I show it is not possible to form this diagram in positive space so that the trefoil is knotted.
