Geography vs. Identity    /    Chord Diagrams, Knots, and Lie Algebras

Toronto, December 6-9, 2019

Geography vs. Identity

Topology Session

Abstract. Which is better, an emphasis on where things happen or on who are the participants? I can't tell; there are advantages and disadvantages either way. Yet much of quantum topology seems to be heavily and unfairly biased in favour of geography.

Chord Diagrams, Knots, and Lie Algebras

Chord Diagrams Everywhere Session

Abstract. This will be a service talk on ancient material - I will briefly describe how the exact same type of chord diagrams (and relations between them) occur in a natural way in both knot theory and in the theory of Lie algebras.
