# s-phys: knotted solitary waves: the begin

<< a team of physicists (..) has found a way to create knotted solitary waves, or knot solitons, in a quantum-mechanical field >>

<< Knots are defined mathematically as closed curves in 3D space. A knot soliton consists of an infinite number of rings, each linked with all of the others to generate a toroidal structure >>

<< This is the beginning of the story of quantum knots >>
