One of the nicer properties a knot can have is to be alternating. These knots tend to be easy to work with, and can give us several nice results about the whole class. Unfortunately, many knots are not alternating, causing general proofs about them to be difficult at best. In this talk, we will take a look at a couple of different ways we can broaden the class of alternating knots, and see what we can get from these different definitions of alternating.
