The Special Collection

These are knots and links that have some intrinsic interest even though they are not in the standard catalogue. You can get a random sampling of some of the knot and links in the special collection by clicking on the 'Sp' button on the main control panel. That button loads a link from one of the files spe0, spe1, spe2, ... which are just a subset of the collection. See this file for a description of what the spe* files are. Please note that there are many other knots and links in the special collection that aren't numbered among the spe* files.

The special collection is located in the special directory in the KnotPlot distributuion.
