Colored Kauffman polynomials and their differential expansions





Kauffman polynomials are the analogues of HOMFLY for $SO(N)$ and $SP(N)$.
They are invariants of non-oriented knots.

Fundamental Kauffman satisfy a modified skein relation.

  • Universal adjoint polynomials
  • LMOV invariants for Kauffman polynomials (see arXiv:1702.06316 for definitions and details).
