String-Math Seminar: Khovanov-Rozansky homology and Hilbert schemes

Seminar | February 6 | 2-3 p.m. | 402 LeConte Hall

 Eugene Gorsky, Davis

 Department of Mathematics

Khovanov and Rozansky introduced a knot homology theory generalizing the HOMFLY polynomial. I will describe a conjectural relation between the Khovanov-Rozansky homology and the homology of sheaves on the flag Hilbert scheme of points on the plane. The talk is based on the joint work with Andrei Negut and Jacob Rasmussen.
