MPIM Lecture Hall I will present a surprising relation between knot invariants and quiver representation theory, motivated

by various string theory constructions involving BPS states. Consequences of this relation include the

proof of the famous Labastida-Marino-Ooguri-Vafa conjecture (at least for symmetric representations),

explicit (and unknown before) formulas for colored HOMFLY polynomials for various knots, new

viewpoint on knot homologies, a novel type of categorification, new dualities between quivers,

and many others.
