Chern–Simons Invariants of Torus Links

Published in Annales Henri Poincaré. 2010, vol. 11, no. 7, p. 1201-1224
Abstract We compute the vacuum expectation values of torus knot operators in Chern–Simons theory, and we obtain explicit formulae for all classical gauge groups and for arbitrary representations. We reproduce a known formula for the HOMFLY invariants of torus knots and links, and we obtain an analogous formula for Kauffman invariants. We also derive a formula for cable knots. We use our results to test a recently proposed conjecture that relates HOMFLY and Kauffman invariants.
