We prove that the reduced 2-coloured Khovanov homology detects the trefoil, using a spectral sequence to knot Floer homology.

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-cableExpand
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 reducedExpand
Khovanov homology detects the trefoils
We prove that Khovanov homology detects the trefoils. Our proof incorporates an array of ideas in Floer homology and contact geometry. It uses open books; the contact invariants we defined in theExpand
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-coverExpand
On the Colored Jones Polynomial, Sutured Floer homology, and Knot Floer homology
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 fromExpand
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 representationExpand
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 theExpand
On the geography and botany of knot Floer homology
This paper explores two questions: (1) Which bigraded groups arise as the knot Floer homology of a knot in the three-sphere? (2) Given a knot, how many distinct knots share its Floer homology?Expand
