Idea

The colored Jones polynomial of a knot or link is a generalization of the Jones polynomial. The latter may be seen as ‘colored’ by the defining 2-dimensional complex linear representation of SU(2), where the NN-colored Jones polynomial J N(K,q)J_N(K, q) involves instead the NN-dimensional irreducible representation.
