A spectral sequence for Khovanov homology with an application to $(3,q)$–torus links

Abstract

We extend the skein exact sequence of Khovanov homology to a spectral sequence which converges to Khovanov homology. We apply this to calculate the rational Khovanov homology of three-stranded torus links.
