A 2-category of chronological cobordisms and odd Khovanov homology

Krzysztof K. Putyra (2014)

Banach Center Publications

We create a framework for odd Khovanov homology in the spirit of Bar-Natan's construction for the ordinary Khovanov homology. Namely, we express the cube of resolutions of a link diagram as a diagram in a certain 2-category of chronological cobordisms and show that it is 2-commutative: the composition of 2-morphisms along any 3-dimensional subcube is trivial. This allows us to create a chain complex whose homotopy type modulo certain relations is a link invariant. Both the original and the odd Khovanov...

A characterization of harmonic sections and a Liouville theorem

Simão Stelmastchuk (2012)

Archivum Mathematicum

Let P ( M , G ) be a principal fiber bundle and E ( M , N , G , P ) an associated fiber bundle. Our interest is to study the harmonic sections of the projection π E of E into M . Our first purpose is give a characterization of harmonic sections of M into E regarding its equivariant lift. The second purpose is to show a version of a Liouville theorem for harmonic sections of π E .
