Flat virtual links and knot invariants | Moscow-Beijing topology seminar

Time:2024-06-12 Wed 15:30-17:00

Venue:Venue: A3-2-301 Zoom:831 5020 0580 141592

Organizer:Vassily Manturov

Speaker:Darya Popova


In the talk l will review a way of constructing invariants of knots in S^3, thickened torus andthickened cylinder that was introduced by V. O. Manturov and l. M. Nikonov. The idea is to map theknots to flat virtual diagrams and use invariants of flat virtual diagrams. Besides l will talk about myfindings on the diagrams which we get by this approach and how they lead to a hypothesis that thepotential of this approach for getting very strong invariants of knots is small.

      Some classical features of the Links-Gould invariants of links | BIMSA Topology Seminar

      AbstractFor a long time, the Alexander polynomial was the main easily computable link invariant to be knownBut in 1984, Jones discovered his well known polynomial link invariant, and that gave birth to the vasitheory of quantum link invariants. However, unlike for the Alexander invariant, it is in general hard todeduce precise topological properties on a knot or link from the value quantum inva...

      The Links–Gould Invariants of links as classical generalizations of the Alexander polynomial

      Abstract The Links-Gould invariants of links are a family of two variable polynomial quantum link invariants built using Hopf superalgebras U_q(gl(m|n)).However, we now know that the Alexander invariant of links can be recovered by evaluating the Links-Gould invariants in several different ways, using works by De Wit-Ishii-Links, and more recently Kohli and Patureau-Mirand. Therefore, all the i...
