    Abstract

    For an oriented knot diagram, we define a cyclic word in letters P and N corresponding to positive and negative crossings along the diagram, respectively. We give a necessary and sufficient condition for a cyclic word in P and N to be obtained from some knot diagram. Also, we prove that any PN sequence of a diagram of a nontrivial knot contains at least four subsequences PP and NN.
