Abstract

We show that the Khovanov complex of a connected link diagram D retracts to a subcomplex whose generators are in 2:1 correspondence with the spanning trees of the "black graph" of D. Using this result, we give a new proof of Lee's theorem on the support of Khovanov homology of alternating knots.
