This question arised at an undergraguate class on differential geometry.
when the frenet frame of a smoosh closed space curve traces
the curve one turn,endpoint of its normal vector constructs another
curve in space. these two curves have a linking number.
What this linking number means, is there anything about it in
litrature?
(we compute it for a specific (2,3)torus knot and a specific
eight knot and it was 6 and 0.)
