Chern-Simons theory and the Thompson group Brini, Andrea

Description

I will present work in progress suggesting a conjecturally general correspondence relating quantum (Chern-Simons) invariants of knots in three-space to (Eynard-Orantin) higher genus mirror symmetry, the computation of the former being solved by the latter. The correspondence rests on the identification of a natural group of piecewise linear transformations on both sides of the correspondence.
