3D TQFT and HOMFLYPT homology

  title={3D TQFT and HOMFLYPT homology},
  author={A. Oblomkov and L. Rozansky},
  journal={arXiv: Geometric Topology},
In this note we propose a 3D TQFT such that its Hilbert space on $S^2$, which intersects with defect surfaces along a (possibly self-intersecting) curve $C$ is the HOMFLYPT homology of the link whose diagram is $C$. Previously this homology was interpreted as the space of sections of a special 2-periodic complex of coherent sheaf on $Hilb_n(\mathbb{C}^2)$. TQFT perspective provides a natural explanation for this interpretation, since the category $D^{per}Coh(Hilb_n(\mathbb{C}^2))$ is the… Expand

Three-dimensional topological field theory and symplectic algebraic geometry I
We study boundary conditions and defects in a three-dimensional topological sigma-model with a complex symplectic target space X (the Rozansky–Witten model). We show that boundary conditionsExpand

Matrix factorizations and link homology II
For each positive integer n the HOMFLY polynomial of links specializes to a one-variable polynomial that can be recovered from the representation theory of quantum sl(n). For each such n we build aExpand

On the Classification of Topological Field Theories
This paper provides an informal sketch of a proof of the Baez-Dolan cobordism hypothesis, which provides a classification for extended topological quantum field theories.
DG quotients of DG categories
