Some notes on the Vogel Algorithm

Dan Roozemond

We discuss the algorithm for the translation of knots into braids by Yamada and Vogel. This was recently implemented in GAP in order to create a link between two computer programs, Knotweaver and Seifertview. We intend to indicate where the difficulties lie in implementing this algorithm, and how they may be solved.
