Title: Knot is Theory isn't for Naught

Abstract: We will see that contrary to Alexander the Great's belief, there really is a lot more to do with knots than hacking away blindly at them. I will start from some basic knot theory to get acquainted with the flavour of the subject and will progress towards discussing fibered knots. These are knots that can be thought of as knots sufficiently nice that they decompose the space in which they lie in a "nice way" (the fibration), which leads to useful properties, and crucially, plenty of pretty pictures.
