Math Seminar Series  (Conferences / Seminars / Lectures)

Student Geometry/Topology

Chen Zhang from Michigan State University will be speaking.

The title is "An introduction to Khovanov homology."

This is a virtual meeting.

Contact Danika Van Niel and Joseph Melby (vannield@msu.edu) for more information.

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.
