When studying knots, it is common to look at their complement to find invariants of the knot. One way to do this is to put a geometric structure on the complement, and look at common geometric invariants, such as volume. This talk is an introduction to hyperbolic knots, knots whose complement admits a hyperbolic structure. This will include a couple of diagramatic conditions to detect hyperbolicity, as well as using the structure to calculate bounds on the volume of the complement.
