Prof. David BROADHURST (The Open University)

Description

I report on two adventures with Dirk Kreimer in Tasmania, 25 years ago. One of these, concerning knots, is not even wrong. The other, concerning a conjectural 4-term relation, is either wrong or right. I suggest that younger colleagues have powerful tools that might be brought to bear on this 4-term conjecture.
