The method that Haken formulated, however, is so complicated that no one has yet been able to write a fully practical computer program to follow the necessary steps and, for a given projection, give a "yes" or "no" answer to the question of whether it's an unknot.
Like Haken, Hass and Lagarias looked at the mathematical characteristics of convoluted disklike surfaces to obtain their proof.
Mathematicians have also sought more tractable alternatives to the Haken algorithm for recognizing an unknot.
One mathematician who has examined the proof closely is Wolfgan Haken of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
Now Haken is waiting to see a more complete version of Rego and Rourke's proof.
