The relationship between categorifications of quantum knot polynomials and Floer homology invariants is intriguing and still poorly-understood. In this talk, I will discuss a connection between Khovanov’s categorification of the reduced n-colored Jones polynomial and sutured Floer homology, a relative version of Heegaard Floer homology recently developed by Andras Juhasz. As an application, I will prove that Khovanov’s categorification detects the unknot when n > 1.
