On Khovanov’s categorication of the

By Jones Polynomial and Dror Bar-natan


Abstract The working mathematician fears complicated words but loves pictures and diagrams. We thus give a no-fancy-anything picture rich glimpse into Khovanov’s novel construction of \the categorication of the Jones polynomial". For the same low cost we also provide some computa-tions, including one that shows that Khovanov’s invariant is strictly stronger than the Jones polynomial and including a table of the values of Khovanov’s invariant for all prime knots with up to 11 crossings.
