Tue, 2019-05-21 12:30 - 14:00 We will review the basics of quantum topology such as the colored Jones polynomial of a knot, its standard conjectures relating to asymptotics, arithmeticity and modularity, as well as the recent quantum hyperbolic invariants of Kashaev et al, their state-integrals and their structural properties. The course is aimed to be accessible by graduate students and young researchers.
