## The A-polynomial in Chern-Simons theory

Research output: Contribution to conference › Poster › Research

One of the most amusing aspects of mathematical physics is the great variety of areas of mathematics it relates to, and builds bridges between. The world of TQFT’s, and in particular Chern-Simons, relates to algebraic geometry via the theory of moduli spaces: one example of this is given by the A-polynomial. This knot invariant is obtained from the algebraic geometry of character varieties, and takes the meaning of the equation of a constraint central in Chern-Simons theory. In my poster I wish to expose the construction of this invariant, and highlight its strong ties with mathematical physics.
