We discuss different invariants of knots and links that depend on a primitive root of unity. We clarify the definitions of existing invariants with the Reshetikhin–Turaev method, present the generalization of ADO invariants to $${{\mathcal{U}}_{q}}(s{{l}_{N}})$$ and highlight the connections between different invariants.

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 the

Colored Alexander invariants and cone-manifolds

In this paper, we reconstruct the link invariant of framed links introduced in [1] by the universal R-matrix of Uq(sl2) and name it the colored Alexander invariant. We check that the optimistic limit

A new polynomial invariant of knots and links

The purpose of this note is to announce a new isotopy invariant of oriented links of tamely embedded circles in 3-space. We represent links by plane projections, using the customary conventions that

By using the notion of a rigid R-matrix in a monoidal category and the Reshetikhin--Turaev functor on the category of tangles, we review the definition of the associated invariant of long knots. In

Invariants of links of Conway type

The purpose of this paper is to present a certain combinatorial method of constructing invariants of isotopy classes of oriented tame links. This arises as a generalization of the known polynomial


The colored braid relation and the Markov trace property explicitly are proved and a new hierarchy of isotopy invariants of colored oriented links through oriented tangle diagrams is defined.

Character expansion for HOMFLY polynomials. I. Integrability and difference equations

We suggest to associate with each knot the set of coefficients of its HOMFLY polynomial expansion into the Schur functions. For each braid representation of the knot these coefficients are defined

Character expansion for HOMFLY polynomials. II. Fundamental representation. Up to five strands in braid

A bstractCharacter expansion is introduced and explicitly constructed for the (noncolored) HOMFLY polynomials of the simplest knots. Expansion coefficients are not the knot invariants and can depend
