# Physics and Mathematics of Link Homology

A co-publication of the AMS and Centre de Recherches Mathématiques

Throughout recent history, the theory of knot
invariants has been a fascinating melting pot of ideas and scientific
cultures, blending mathematics and physics, geometry, topology and
algebra, gauge theory, and quantum gravity.

The 2013 Séminaire de Mathématiques
Supérieures in Montréal presented an opportunity for the
next generation of scientists to learn in one place about the various
perspectives on knot homology, from the mathematical background to the
most recent developments, and provided an access point to the relevant
parts of theoretical physics as well.

This volume presents a cross-section of topics covered at that
summer school and will be a valuable resource for graduate students
and researchers wishing to learn about this rapidly growing field.
