27 July 2021 - 12:00pm - Polynomial Link Invariants from Markov Traces on Braid Group Representations
In 1984 Vaughan Jones discovered a polynomial knot invariant that is now called the Jones polynomial. This talk will explore the process of obtaining polynomial knot invariants from Markov traces on braid group representations. In particular, we...
