Weight systems on chord diagrams in Physics

Weight systems on chord diagrams in Physics

We discuss occurrences of weight systems on chord diagrams/Jacobi diagrams in physics, specifically as correlators/Feynman amplitudes/quantum observables.

  1. In Chern-Simons theory

  2. For single trace operators in AdS/CFT-duality

    1. In AdS2/CFT1, JT-gravity/SYK-model

    2. In Dp-D(p+2) brane intersections

In Chern-Simons theory

Since weight systems are the associated graded of Vassiliev invariants, and since Vassiliev invariants are knot invariants arising as certain correlators/Feynman amplitudes of Chern-Simons theory in the presence of Wilson lines, there is a close relation between weight systems and quantum Chern-Simons theory.

Historically this is the original application of chord diagrams/Jacobi diagrams and their weight systems, see also at graph complex and Kontsevich integral.
