Many systems contain flux tubes which tighten due to their own tension. This workshop will study all aspects of tightly knotted and linked systems which support quantized flux tubes. The systems studied will range over, but not be limited to, superconductors, cosmic strings, and gauge theories, such as quantum chromodynamics. Some topics to be considered will be:
