A scanning algorithm for odd Khovanov homology

Dirk Schütz

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 22 (2022) 1287–1324
Abstract

We adapt Bar-Natan’s scanning algorithm for fast computations in (even) Khovanov homology to odd Khovanov homology. We use a mapping cone construction instead of a tensor product, which allows us to deal efficiently with the more complicated sign assignments in the odd theory. The algorithm has been implemented in a computer program. We also use the algorithm to determine the odd Khovanov homology of 3–strand torus links.
