Abstract: There is a natural way of identifying links in 3-space with polynomial covering spaces over the circle. Thereby any link in 3-space can be defined by a Weierstrass polynomial over the circle. The equivalence relation for covering spaces over the circle is, however, completely different from that for links in 3-space. This paper initiates a study of the connections between polynomial covering spaces over the circle and links in 3-space.
Keywords: polynomial covering space, Weierstrass polynomial, knot, link
