# Cyclotomic associators and finite type invariants for tangles in the solid torus

@article{Brochier2012CyclotomicAA, title={Cyclotomic associators and finite type invariants for tangles in the solid torus}, author={Adrien Brochier}, journal={arXiv: Quantum Algebra}, year={2012} }

The universal Vassiliev-Kontsevich invariant is a functor from the category of tangles to a certain graded category of chord diagrams, compatible with the Vassiliev filtration and whose associated graded is an isomorphism. The Vassiliev filtration has a natural extension to tangles in any thickened surface $M\times I$ but the corresponding category of diagrams lacks some finiteness properties which are essential to the above construction. We suggest to overcome this obstruction by studying…
