We define a triply-graded invariant of links in a genus g handlebody, generalizing the colored HOMFLYPT (co)homology of links in the 3-ball. Our main tools are the description of these links in terms of a subgroup of the classical braid group, and a family of categorical actions built from complexes of (singular) Soergel bimodules. 
Handlebody diagram algebras
In this paper we study handlebody versions of classical diagram algebras, most prominently, handlebody versions of Temperley–Lieb, blob, Brauer/BMW, Hecke and Ariki– Koike algebras. Moreover,
We study the geometry and topology of exotic Springer fibers for orbits corresponding to one-row bipartitions from an explicit, combinatorial point of view. This includes a detailed analysis of the
Tensor product categorifications, Verma modules and the blob 2-category
We construct a dg-enhancement of Webster's tensor product algebras that categorifies the tensor product of a universal sl2 Verma module and several integrable irreducible modules. We show that the
Schur–Weyl duality, Verma modules, and row quotients of Ariki–Koike algebras
We prove a Schur-Weyl duality between the quantum enveloping algebra of $\mathfrak{gl}_m$ and certain quotient algebras of Ariki-Koike algebras, which we give explicitly. The duality involves several
Subdivision and cellularity for weighted KLRW algebras
. Weighted KLRW algebras are diagram algebras generalizing KLR algebras. This paper undertakes a systematic study of these algebras culminating in the construction of homogeneous affine cellular bases
Khovanov polynomials for satellites and asymptotic adjoint polynomials
We compute explicitly the Khovanov polynomials (using the computer program from this http URL) for the two simplest families of the satellite knots, which are the twisted Whitehead doubles and the
Sandwich cellularity and a version of cell theory
We explain how the theory of sandwich cellular algebras can be seen as a version of cell theory for algebras. We apply this theory to many examples such as Hecke algebras, and various monoid and


Triply-graded link homology and Hochschild homology of Soergel bimodules
We consider a class of bimodules over polynomial algebras which were originally introduced by Soergel in relation to the Kazhdan–Lusztig theory, and which describe a direct summand of the category of
A geometric construction of colored HOMFLYPT homology
The aim of this paper is two-fold. First, we give a fully geometric description of the HOMFLYPT homology of Khovanov-Rozansky. Our method is to construct this invariant in terms of the cohomology of
Gaitsgory's central sheaves via the diagrammatic Hecke category
We initiate the study of Gaitsgory's central sheaves using complexes of Soergel bimodules, in extended affine type A. We conjecture that the complex associated to the standard representation can be
Categorification of the Kauffman bracket skein module of I-bundles over surfaces
Khovanov defined graded homology groups for links LR 3 and showed that their polynomial Euler characteristic is the Jones polyno- mial of L. Khovanov's construction does not extend in a

It is proved that the homotopy type of this chain complex is invariant under Reidemeister moves and decategorifies to the Reshetikhin-Turaev sl(N) polynomial of links colored by exterior powers of the defining representation.
Khovanov-Rozansky homology and 2-braid groups
Khovanov has given a construction of the Khovanov-Rozansky link invariants (categorifying the HOMFLYPT invariant) using Hochschild cohomology of 2-braid groups. We give a direct proof that his
Matrix factorizations and link homology
Author(s): Khovanov, Mikhail; Rozansky, Lev | Abstract: For each positive integer n the HOMFLY polynomial of links specializes to a one-variable polynomial that can be recovered from the
Sutured annular Khovanov-Rozansky homology
We introduce an sl(n) homology theory for knots and links in the thickened annulus. To do so, we first give a fresh perspective on sutured annular Khovanov homology, showing that its definition
Quadruply-graded colored homology of knots
We conjecture the existence of four independent gradings in colored HOMFLYPT homology, and make qualitative predictions of various interesting structures and symmetries in the colored homology of
Categorification of sl 2 and braid groups
We describe categorifications of sl2 and braid groups. In a first part, we give a survey of the case of sl2 (joint work with Joseph Chuang [ChRou]) and explain how it leads to the construction of
