Use of “abstract tensors” for trivalent graphs

Preamble: For knots, a necessary and sufficient set of "graphic rules" for using Kauffmans abstract tensors was given by Turaev. The lowest dimensional solutions, interpreting these abstract tensors ...

Categorification of WRT invariants of integral homology spheres

First, I would like to know how many definitions are there for categorification of WRT invariants. In addition, I wonder if the categorified version of WRT invariants have been explicitly computed for ...

How do quantum knot invariants change when I pick a funny ribbon element?

So, there's a construction of Reshetikhin and Turaev which extracts knot invariants from ribbon monoidal categories, which are (usually) the representation category a Hopf algebra with a choice of ...

What's the best reference for actual formulas for RT invariants?

If one really wants to understand the formulas for how to construct the Reshetikhin-Turaev 3-manifold invariants coming from quantum groups in terms of R-matrices and such, what's the best reference ...
