Let K in S^3 be a knot, and let \widetilde{K} denote the preimage of K inside its double branched cover, \Sigma(K). We prove, for each integer n > 1, the existence of a spectral sequence from Khovanov's categorification of the reduced n-colored Jones polynomial of the mirror of K to the knot Floer homology of (\Sigma(K),\widetilde{K}) (when n odd) and to (S^3, K # K) (when n even). A corollary of our result is that Khovanov's categorification of the reduced n-colored Jones polynomial detects… 
Khovanov Homology, Sutured Floer Homology, and Annular Links
Lawrence Roberts, extending the work of Ozsvath-Szabo, showed how to associate to a link, L, in the complement of a fixed unknot, B, in S^3, a spectral sequence from the Khovanov homology of a link
Bordered Floer homology and the branched double cover I
Given a link in the three-sphere, Z. Szab\'o and the second author constructed a spectral sequence starting at the Khovanov homology of the link and converging to the Heegaard Floer homology of its
A combinatorial spanning tree model for knot Floer homology
Abstract We iterate Manolescu’s unoriented skein exact triangle in knot Floer homology with coefficients in the field of rational functions over Z / 2 Z . The result is a spectral sequence which
A graph TQFT for hat Heegaard Floer homology
In this paper we introduce an extension of the hat Heegaard Floer TQFT which allows cobordisms with disconnected ends. Our construction goes by way of sutured Floer homology, and uses some elementary
Bordered Floer homology and the spectral sequence of a branched double cover I
Given a link in the three-sphere, Z. Szab\'o and the second author constructed a spectral sequence starting at the Khovanov homology of the link and converging to the Heegaard Floer homology of its
Khovanov homology and the symmetry group of a knot
We introduce an invariant of tangles in Khovanov homology by considering a natural inverse system of Khovanov homology groups. As application, we derive an invariant of strongly invertible knots;
On the naturality of the spectral sequence from Khovanov homology to Heegaard Floer homology
Ozsvath and Szabo have established an algebraic relationship, in the form of a spectral sequence, between the reduced Khovanov homology of (the mirror of) a link L in S^3 and the Heegaard Floer
State cycles, quasipositive modification, and constructing H-thick knots in Khovanov homology
We study Khovanov homology classes which have state cycle representatives, and examine how they interact with Jacobsson homomorphisms and Lee's map $\Phi$. As an application, we describe a general
Annular Khovanov-Lee homology, braids, and cobordisms
We prove that the Khovanov-Lee complex of an oriented link, L, in a thickened annulus, A x I, has the structure of a bifiltered complex whose filtered chain homotopy type is an invariant of the
Khovanov homology is an unknot-detector
We prove that a knot is the unknot if and only if its reduced Khovanov cohomology has rank 1. The proof has two steps. We show first that there is a spectral sequence beginning with the reduced

Floer homology and knot complements
We use the Ozsvath-Szabo theory of Floer homology to define an invariant of knot complements in three-manifolds. This invariant takes the form of a filtered chain complex, which we call CF_r. It
Floer homology and surface decompositions
Sutured Floer homology, denoted by SFH, is an invariant of balanced sutured manifolds previously defined by the author. In this paper we give a formula that shows how this invariant changes under
On the Heegaard Floer homology of branched double-covers
Abstract Let L ⊂ S 3 be a link. We study the Heegaard Floer homology of the branched double-cover Σ ( L ) of S 3 , branched along L. When L is an alternating link, HF ^ of its branched double-cover
Link Floer homology detects the Thurston norm
We prove that, for a link L in a rational homology 3–sphere, the link Floer homology detects the Thurston norm of its complement. This result has been proved by Ozsvath and Szabo for links in S^3. As
Holomorphic disks and knot invariants
Abstract We define a Floer-homology invariant for knots in an oriented three-manifold, closely related to the Heegaard Floer homologies for three-manifolds defined in an earlier paper. We set up
On the Khovanov and knot Floer homologies of quasi-alternating links
Quasi-alternating links are a natural generalization of alternating links. In this paper, we show that quasi-alternating links are "homologically thin" for both Khovanov homology and knot Floer
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
Holomorphic disks and genus bounds
We prove that, like the Seiberg{Witten monopole homology, the Heegaard Floer homology for a three-manifold determines its Thurston norm. As a consequence, we show that knot Floer homology detects the
Khovanov homology of the $2$-cable detects the unknot
Inspired by recent work of Grigsby and Werhli, we use the deep geometric content of Ozsvath and Szabo's Floer homology theory to provide a short proof that the Khovanov homology of the 2-cable
Categorifications of the colored Jones polynomial
The colored Jones polynomial of links has two natural normalizations: one in which the n-colored unknot evaluates to [n+1], the quantum dimension of the (n+1)-dimensional irreducible representation
