This data set consists of random equilateral confined knot configurations and their corresponding knot types. The configurations lie within spheres of different radii and are rooted at the origin (i.e. have one vertex at the origin). The algorithms used are described in the following articles.

For length 30, the set has radii 1.0 through 3.0 by steps of 0.1, and 3.5, 4.0, and 4.5. For radius 3.0, the set has lengths 10 through 90 by steps of 10. All files are plain text.
