3-Manifold Seminar: Chromatic and Temperley-Lieb algebras
Seminar | February 14 | 3:40-5 p.m. | 891 Evans Hall
Ian Agol, UC Berkeley
I'll discuss the chromatic algebra introduced by Fendley-Krushkal and its relation with the Temperley-Lieb algebra. We'll use this relation to understand the behavior of the chromatic algebra at special values, the Beraha numbers, leading to Tutte's golden identity.
