BPS Invariants for a Knot in Seifert Manifolds

  title={BPS Invariants for a Knot in Seifert Manifolds},
  author={Hee-Joong Chung},
: We calculate homological blocks for a knot in Seifert manifolds from the Chern-Simons partition function with a Wilson loop operator when the gauge group is SU ( N ). From the expectation value of the Wilson loop operator, we obtain the homological blocks by analytically continuing the Chern-Simons level with a given representation. We also obtain homological blocks with the analytically continued level and representation for a knot in the Seifert integer homology spheres. 



BPS invariants for Seifert manifolds

We calculate the homological blocks for Seifert manifolds from the exact ex- pression for the G = SU( N ) Witten-Reshetikhin-Turaev invariants of Seifert manifolds obtained by Lawrence, Rozansky, and

Chern-Simons theory on Seifert 3-manifolds

A bstractWe study Chern-Simons theory on 3-manifolds M that are circle-bundles over 2-dimensional orbifolds Σ by the method of Abelianisation. This method, which completely sidesteps the issue of

Localization for Wilson Loops in Chern-Simons Theory

We reconsider Chern-Simons gauge theory on a Seifert manifold M , which is the total space of a nontrivial circle bundle over a Riemann surface Σ, possibly with orbifold points. As shown in previous

Knot Invariants and Topological Strings

Chern-Simons Theory, Matrix Integrals, and Perturbative Three-Manifold Invariants

The universal perturbative invariants of rational homology spheres can be extracted from the Chern-Simons partition function by combining perturbative and nonperturbative results. We spell out the

Fivebranes and 3-manifold homology

A bstractMotivated by physical constructions of homological knot invariants, we study their analogs for closed 3-manifolds. We show that fivebrane compactifications provide a universal description of

3-Manifolds and VOA Characters

By studying the properties of q-series Ẑ-invariants, we develop a dictionary between 3-manifolds and vertex algebras. In particular, we generalize previously known entries in this dictionary to Lie

Quantum field theory and the Jones polynomial

It is shown that 2+1 dimensional quantum Yang-Mills theory, with an action consisting purely of the Chern-Simons term, is exactly soluble and gives a natural framework for understanding the Jones

Resurgent Analysis for Some 3-manifold Invariants

We study resurgence for some 3-manifold invariants when $G_{\mathbb{C}}=SL(2, \mathbb{C})$. We discuss the case of an infinite family of Seifert manifolds for general roots of unity and the case of

BPS spectra and 3-manifold invariants

We provide a physical definition of new homological invariants [Formula: see text] of 3-manifolds (possibly, with knots) labeled by abelian flat connections. The physical system in question involves
