We illustrate from the viewpoint of braiding operations on WZNW conformal blocks how colored HOMFLY polynomials with multiplicity structure can detect mutations. As an example, we explicitly evaluate the -colored HOMFLY polynomials that distinguish a famous mutant pair, Kinoshita-Terasaka and Conway knot.

On rectangular HOMFLY for twist knots
As a new step in the study of rectangularly-colored knot polynomials, we reformulate the prescription [A. Morozov, arXiv:1606.06015v8] for twist knots in the double-column representations R = [rr] in
Difference of Mutant Knot Invariants and Their Differential Expansion
We evaluate the differences of HOMFLY-PT invariants for pairs of mutant knots colored with representations of $SL(N)$, which are large enough to distinguish between them. These mutant pairs include
Colored HOMFLY polynomials of knots presented as double fat diagrams
A bstractMany knots and links in S3 can be drawn as gluing of three manifolds with one or more four-punctured S2 boundaries. We call these knot diagrams as double fat graphs whose invariants involve
Tabulating knot polynomials for arborescent knots
Arborescent knots are the ones which can be represented in terms of double fat graphs or equivalently as tree Feynman diagrams. This is the class of knots for which the present knowledge is enough
On the defect and stability of differential expansion
Empirical analysis of many colored knot polynomials, made possible by recent computational advances in Chern–Simons theory, reveals their stability: for any given negative N and any given knot the
Nontorus link from topological vertex
The recently suggested tangle calculus for knot polynomials is intimately related to topological string considerations and can help to build the HOMFLY-PT invariants from the topological vertices. We

Abstract Mutant knots, in the sense of Conway, are known to share the same Homfly polynomial. Their 2-string satellites also share the same Homfly polynomial, but in general their m-string satellites
Khovanov Homology and Conway Mutation
We present an easy example of mutant links with different Khovanov homology. The existence of such an example is important because it shows that Khovanov homology cannot be defined with a skein rule
