We study universal properties of random knotting by making an extensive use of isotopy invariants of knots. We define knotting probability (P K (N )) by the probability of an N -noded random polygon being topologically equivalent to a given knot K. The question is the following: for a given model of random polygon how the knotting probability changes with respect to the number N of polygonal nodes? Through numerical simulation we see that the knotting probability can be expressed by a simple
