### Abstract

In this article we shall give an account of certain developments in knot theory which followed upon the discovery of the Jones polynomial [Jo3] in 1984. The focus of our account will be recent glimmerings of understanding of the topological meaning of the new invariants. A second theme will be the central role that braid
