MIT researchers have developed a model that helps untangle the mystery behind why some knot are more stable than others, reports Theresa Machemer for Smithsonian. The researchers “paired mathematical knot theory with a color-changing fiber developed in 2013,” Machemer explains. “Because the fiber changes color under pressure, the researchers were able to measure physical properties and add data to their computational knot models."
