Algebraic Knot Theory

University at Buffalo, March 23, 2007

Abstract. Wearing the hat of a topologist, I will argue that despite the (justified) great interest in categorification, the good old "Kontsevich Integral" is even more interesting and highly under-studied. The gist: the Kontsevich Integral behaves well under cool operations that make a lot of 3-dimensional sense.
