Abstract: 

In the first three quarters of the talk we will introduce several 4-dimensional questions about knots in 3-space. In the last quarter we will discuss some recent strategies for solving such questions, coming from abstract algebra and partial differential equations. Most of the talk should be broadly accessible.
