On Colored HOMFLY homology

I’ll try to give a brief description of the categorification of colored HOMFLY polynomial for knots, and discuss various open problems related with these invariants, including their definition, properties, relationship with string theory, as well as surprising combinatorial identities and properties of these invariants in special cases of torus knots and rational knots.
