Tian Yang from Texas A&M
University will be presenting a seminar titled
"Relative Reshetikhin-Turaev invariants and
hyperbolic cone metrics on 3-manifolds."\n

This seminar will take place online. Visit

Abstract:\n
We
propose the Volume Conjecture for
the relative Reshetikhin-Turaev invariants of
a closed oriented 3-manifold with a colored
framed link inside it whose asymptotic behavior
is related to the volume and the Chern-Simons
invariant of the hyperbolic cone metric on
the manifold with singular locus the link and
cone angles determined by the coloring, and
prove the conjecture for a number of families
of examples. This provides a possible approach
of solving the Volume Conjecture for the
Reshetikhin-Turaev invariants of closed oriented
hyperbolic 3-manifolds. A large part of
this work is joint with Ka Ho Wong.\n\n
