Abstract

Dual graph diagrams are an alternate way to present oriented knots and links in $R^3$. In this talk we will see how to turn dual graph Reidemeister moves into an algebraic structure known as biquasiles and use this structure to define new integer-valued counting invariants of oriented knots and links.
