# Reduced 2-coloured Khovanov Homology detects the Trefoil

@article{Robinson2018Reduced2K, title={Reduced 2-coloured Khovanov Homology detects the Trefoil}, author={George Robinson}, journal={arXiv: Geometric Topology}, year={2018} }

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

- Mathematics
- 2008

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…

Khovanov homology is an unknot-detector

- Mathematics
- 2010

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…

Khovanov homology detects the trefoils

- Mathematics

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 the…

On the Heegaard Floer homology of branched double-covers

- Mathematics

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…

On the Colored Jones Polynomial, Sutured Floer homology, and Knot Floer homology

- Mathematics

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…

Categorifications of the colored Jones polynomial

- Mathematics
- 2003

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…

Holomorphic disks and genus bounds

- Mathematics
- 2004

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…

On the geography and botany of knot Floer homology

- Mathematics
- 2014

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?…
