|Holomorphic flexibility of complex manifolds|
Abstract: In my talk I will display one complicated picture and discuss it at length, finding that it's actually quite simple. Applying a certain 2D TQFT, we will get a homology theory whose Euler characteristic is the Jones polynomial. Not applying it, very cheaply we will get an invariant of tangles which is functorial under cobordisms and an invariant of 2-knots.
Why is it interesting?
