# The Resurgent Structure of Quantum Knot Invariants

@article{Garoufalidis2020TheRS, title={The Resurgent Structure of Quantum Knot Invariants}, author={S. Garoufalidis and Jie Gu and M. Mari{\~n}o}, journal={arXiv: High Energy Physics - Theory}, year={2020} }

The asymptotic expansion of quantum knot invariants in complex Chern-Simons theory gives rise to factorially divergent formal power series. We conjecture that these series are resurgent functions whose Stokes automorphism is given by a pair of matrices of $q$-series with integer coefficients, which are determined explicitly by the fundamental solutions of a pair of linear $q$-difference equations. We further conjecture that for a hyperbolic knot, a distinguished entry of those matrices equals… Expand
