I'm looking for a citable reference for the following (perhaps folkloric?) result on topological field theories. (There are obviously generalizations to other dimensions; I'm happy with just the ...
This question concerns the HOMFLY-PT category, closely related to Hecke algebras. (See here for example.) The minimal idempotents of this category are indexed by pairs $(\lambda_+, \lambda_-)$ of ...
This question concerns the Birman-Murakami-Wenzl category, or equivalently the tangle category associated to the 2-variable Kauffman polynomial. (See here for example.) The minimal idempotents of ...
There are a good number of quantum topology papers in which a TQFT-like set-up is constructed as a functor to the category of vector spaces from some category of cobordisms which satisfy some ...
