  journal={arXiv: Quantum Algebra},
We define and study the category of symmetric $\mathfrak{sl}_2$-webs. This category is a combinatorial description of the category of all finite dimensional quantum $\mathfrak{sl}_2$-modules. Explicitly, we show that (the additive closure of) the symmetric $\mathfrak{sl}_2$-spider is (braided monoidally) equivalent to the latter. Our main tool is a quantum version of symmetric Howe duality. As a corollary of our construction, we provide new insight into Jones-Wenzl projectors and the colored… Expand
Super $q$-Howe duality and web categories
We use super $q$-Howe duality to provide diagrammatic presentations of an idempotented form of the Hecke algebra and of categories of $\mathfrak{gl}_N$-modules (and, more generally,Expand
Categorical geometric symmetric Howe duality
We provide a natural geometric setting for symmetric Howe duality. This is realized as a (loop) $$\mathfrak {sl}_n$$sln action on derived categories of coherent sheaves on certain varieties arisingExpand
Symmetric Khovanov-Rozansky link homologies
We provide a finite dimensional categorification of the symmetric evaluation of $\mathfrak{sl}_N$-webs using foam technology. As an output we obtain a symmetric link homology theory categorifying theExpand
Generic $\mathfrak{gl}_2$-foams, web and arc algebras
We define parameter dependent $\mathfrak{gl}_2$-foams and their associated web and arc algebras and verify that they specialize to several known $\mathfrak{sl}_2$ or $\mathfrak{gl}_2$ constructionsExpand
Mixed quantum skew Howe duality and link invariants of type A
We define a ribbon category $\mathsf{Sp}(\beta)$, depending on a parameter $\beta$, which encompasses Cautis, Kamnitzer and Morrison's spider category, and describes for $\beta=m-n$ the monoidalExpand
Annular Evaluation and Link Homology
We use categorical annular evaluation to give a uniform construction of both $\mathfrak{sl}_n$ and HOMFLYPT Khovanov-Rozansky link homology, as well as annular versions of these theories. VariationsExpand
SL2 tilting modules in the mixed case
Using the non-semisimple Temperley–Lieb calculus, we study the additive and monoidal structure of the category of tilting modules for SL2 in the mixed case. This simultaneously generalizes theExpand
On webs in quantum type C
We study webs in quantum type $C$, focusing on the rank three case. We define a linear pivotal category $\mathbf{Web}(\mathfrak{sp}_6)$ diagrammatically by generators and relations, and conjectureExpand
Trihedral Soergel bimodules
The quantum Satake correspondence relates dihedral Soergel bimodules to the semisimple quotient of the quantum $\mathfrak{sl}_2$ representation category. It also establishes a precise relationExpand
Diagrammatics for representation categories of quantum Lie superalgebras from skew Howe duality and categorification via foams
In this thesis we generalise quantum skew Howe duality to Lie superalgebras in type A, and show how this gives a categorification of certain representation categories of $\mathfrak{gl}(m|n)$. InExpand

Categorification of the Jones-Wenzl Projectors
The Jones-Wenzl projectors play a central role in quantum topology, underlying the construction of SU(2) topological quantum field theories and quantum spin networks. We construct chain complexesExpand
Categorical geometric skew Howe duality
AbstractWe categorify the R-matrix isomorphism between tensor products of minuscule representations of $U_{q}({\mathfrak{sl}}_{n})$ by constructing an equivalence between the derived categories ofExpand
$\mathfrak{sl}_n$-webs, categorification and Khovanov-Rozansky homologies
In this paper we define an explicit basis for the $\mathfrak{sl}_n$-web algebra $H_n(\vec{k})$, the $\mathfrak{sl}_n$ generalization of Khovanov's arc algebra $H_{2}(m)$, using categorified $q$-skewExpand
The $\mathfrak{sl}_n$ foam 2-category: a combinatorial formulation of Khovanov-Rozansky homology via categorical skew Howe duality
We give a purely combinatorial construction of colored $\mathfrak{sl}_n$ link homology. The invariant takes values in a 2-category where 2-morphisms are given by foams, singular cobordisms betweenExpand
Webs and quantum skew Howe duality
We give a diagrammatic presentation in terms of generators and relations of the representation category of $$U_q({\mathfrak {sl}}_n) $$Uq(sln). More precisely, we produce all the relations amongExpand
In this paper we use Kuperberg's sl3-webs and Khovanov's sl3-foams to define a new algebra K S , which we call the sl3-web algebra. It is the sl3 analogue of Khovanov's arc algebra. We prove that K SExpand
Categorifying fractional Euler characteristics, Jones-Wenzl projector and $3j$-symbols with applications to Exts of Harish-Chandra bimodules
