# Everything around $sl_{2+}^\epsilon$ is **DoPeGDO**. So what?

### Monash University, October 9, 2019.

**Abstract.** I'll explain what "everything around" means:
classical and quantum $m$, $\Delta$, $S$, $tr$, $R$, $C$, and $\theta$,
as well as $P$, $\Phi$, $J$, ${\mathbb D}$, and more, and all of their
compositions. What **DoPeGDO** means: the category of Docile Perturbed
Gaussian Differential Operators. And what $sl_{2+}^\epsilon$ means:
a solvable approximation of the semi-simple Lie algebra $sl_2$.

Knot theorists should rejoice because all this leads to very
powerful and well-behaved poly-time-computable knot invariants (more
at a talk I will have given on Monday at the University of Melbourne,
http://drorbn.net/melb19). Quantum
algebraists should rejoice because it's a realistic playground for
testing complicated equations and theories.

This is joint work with Roland van der Veen and continues work by Rozansky and Overbay.
