Cars, Interchanges, Traffic Counters, and a Pretty Darned Good Knot Invariant

55th Spring Topology and Dynamical Systems Conference, March 12, 2022.

Abstract. Reporting on joint work with Roland van der Veen, I'll tell you some stories about $\rho_1$, an easy to define, strong, fast to compute, homomorphic, and well-connected knot invariant. $\rho_1$ was first studied by Rozansky and Overbay, it has far-reaching generalizations, and I wish I understood it.
