Knot Invariants and Higher Representation Theory
by Ben Webster
Publisher: arXiv 2013
Number of pages: 87
We construct knot invariants categorifying the quantum knot variants for all representations of quantum groups. We show that these invariants coincide with previous invariants defined by Khovanov for sl_2 and sl_3 and by Mazorchuk-Stroppel and Sussan for sl_n.

This book represents an attempt to collect and systematize the methods and main applications of the method of surgery, insofar as compact (but not necessarily connected, simply connected or closed) manifolds are involved.

Homology manifolds were developed in the 20th century to give a precise setting for Poincare's ideas on duality. They are investigated using algebraic and geometric methods. This volume is the proceedings of a workshop held in 2003.

The book present original research on a wide range of topics in modern topology: the algebraic K-theory of spaces, the algebraic obstructions to surgery and finiteness, geometric and chain complexes, characteristic classes, and transformation groups.

An introduction to the most frequently used techniques in modern global geometry. Suited to the beginning graduate student, the necessary prerequisite is a good knowledge of several variables calculus, linear algebra and point-set topology.
