DT Name

The Dowker-Thistlethwaite name of a knot is based on the lexicographical ordering of the minimal DT notation for the knot. We use "a" and "n" to distinguish the alternating and nonalternating knots. The orientation conventions assume that the first crossing is right handed. These names are used here for the names of 11 crossing knots, while the classical names are used for 10 and fewer crossing knots.
