GEOMETRY & TOPOLOGY AT PRINCETON: Khovanov homology in characteristic two and involutive monopole Floer homology

Friday, February 17, 2017 -
1:00pm to 1:20pm

There are various spectral sequences starting from the Khovanov homology of a link in S^3 (which is an algebraically defined quantum invariant) to various versions of Floer homology (which are invariants with a more analytical nature). In this talk, we discuss what are the implications in this context of the conjugation symmetry in Seiberg-Witten theory.
