HTL - Homology theories in low dimensional topology

We study the conjugation involution in Seiberg-Witten theory in the context of the Ozsvath-Szabo and Bloom's spectral sequence for the branched double cover of a link L in S3. We show that there exists a spectral sequence of F[Q]/Q2-modules (where Q has degree −1) which converges to an involutive version of the monopole Floer homology of the branched double cover, and whose E^2-page is a version of Bar Natan's deformation of Khovanov homology in characteristic two of the mirror of L. We conjecture that an analogous result holds in the setting of Pin(2)-monopole Floer homology.
