Representations of the Kauffman bracket skein algebra, II: Punctured surfaces

Francis Bonahon and Helen Wong

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 17 (2017) 3399–3434

In part I, we constructed invariants of irreducible finite-dimensional representations of the Kauffman bracket skein algebra of a surface. We introduce here an inverse construction, which to a set of possible invariants associates an irreducible representation that realizes these invariants. The current article is restricted to surfaces with at least one puncture, a condition that is lifted in subsequent work relying on this one. A step in the proof is of independent interest, and describes the arithmetic structure of the Thurston intersection form on the space of integer weight systems for a train track.
