# Prime Links

by DesignByNumbers, last updated# Description

This is collection of models of mathematical links. A mathematical link is composed of several closed curves which can't be separated from each other without crossing, which may in addition be tied in knots. Links which cannot be written as two simpler links spliced together are called "prime links". The prime links have been tabulated, and this is (or anyway, should be) a complete collection of all the prime links which have some configuration with 8 or fewer crossings.
