SUMMARY:Math Seminar Series
DESCRIPTION:
Student Geometry/Topology\n
\n
Chen Zhang from Michigan
State University will be speaking.\n
\n
The
title is "An introduction to Khovanov homology."\n
\n
This
is a virtual meeting.\n
\n
Contact
Danika Van Niel and Joseph Melby (vannield@msu.edu)
for more information.\n
\n
This is
an introduction talk for Khovanov homology. Since
Khovanov homology categorifies Jones polynomial,
I will start with a brief discussion
about Jones polynomial and the enhanced states
for the bracket state sum. After that I will
show how to construct Khonvanov homology from
the enhanced states and its invariance under
Reidemeister moves, which makes it a well
defined link invariant.\n\n
