SU(2) character varieties and a Lagrangian-Floer theory for tangle decompositions of Knots

Paul Kirk (Indiana University Bloomington)

Monday 5th October, 2015 16:00-17:00 Maths 522


I will describe ongoing work with Herald and Hedden to produce invariants of knots in 3-manifolds
from the Lagrangian-Floer homology of SU(2) character varieties associated to a tangle decomposition of the knot, and discuss their relation to singular instanton homology
