Abstract. We employ the relationship between contact structures and Beltrami fields derived in part I of this series to construct a steady nonsingular solution to the Euler equations on a Riemannian S 3 whose flowlines trace out closed curves of all possible knot and link types. Using careful contact-topological controls, we can make such vector fields realanalytic and transverse to the tight contact structure on S 3. Sufficient review of concepts is included to make this paper independent of the previous works in this series. 1
