A quantum categorification of the Alexander polynomial

Louis-Hadrien Robert and Emmanuel Wagner

Geometry & Topology 26 (2022) 1985–2064
Abstract

Using a modified foam evaluation, we give a categorification of the Alexander polynomial of a knot. We also give a purely algebraic version of this knot homology which makes it appear as the infinite page of a spectral sequence starting at the reduced triply graded link homology of Khovanov and Rozansky.
