Cabled Wilson loops in BF theories


Cattaneo, A S (1996). Cabled Wilson loops in BF theories. Journal of Mathematical Physics, 37(8):3684-3703.

Abstract

A generating function for cabled Wilson loops in three‐dimensional BF theories is defined, and a careful study of its behavior for vanishing cosmological constant is performed. This allows an exhaustive description of the unframed knot invariants coming from the pure BF theory based on SU(2), and, in particular, it proves a conjecture relating them to the Alexander–Conway polynomial. © 1996 American Institute of Physics.
