Bernoulli Lecture I - Knot contact homology and topological strings   06 February 2014

16:15 - 17:15

Lecturer

Tobias Ekholm , Uppsala University

We discuss the recently observed relation between knot contact homology and open topological strings. This in particular gives two ways of looking at the augmentation variety from knot contact homology, which describe the relevant string theory at the level of the disk. We discuss a generalization of knot contact homology in the spirit of full symplectic field theory that corresponds to full quantum string theory and relate it to the recursion relations for the colored HOMFLY polynomial.
