I am currently studying the geometric properties of
holonomic knots and their relationship to Legendrian
knots. Holonomic knots are close space curves
parametrized by (-f,f',-f'') for a periodic function f.
It turns out that these curves represent all knot types
and that (ambient) isotopic holonomic knots are
holonomically isotopic. They also have interesting
geometric properties. For example, there is an easy
condition on f under which a holonomic knot has
