# Notes on Matrix Factorizations and Knot Homology

@article{Oblomkov2019NotesOM, title={Notes on Matrix Factorizations and Knot Homology}, author={Alexei Oblomkov}, journal={Lecture Notes in Mathematics}, year={2019} }

These are the notes of the lectures delivered by the author at CIME in June 2018. The main purpose of the notes is to provide an overview of the techniques used in the construction of the triply graded link homology. The homology is the space of global sections of a particular sheaf on the Hilbert scheme of points on the plane. Our construction relies on existence on the natural push-forward functor for the equivariant matrix factorizations, we explain the subtleties on the construction in… Expand

Among the most interesting invariants one can associate with an oriented link L ⊂ S3 is its homfly-pt polynomial P(L, v, s) ∈ Z[v±1, (s − s−1)±1] ([13, 33]). In 2010 A. Oblomkov and V. Shende ([32])… Expand
