Abstract:

The state sum invariants are invariants of 3-manifolds. Turaev and Viro defined the state sum invariants by using "$6j$-symbols" arising from the representations of the quantum group. Ocneanu generalized their invariants to ones which are constructed from $6j$-symbols of subfactors.

In this talk, we introduce a linear skein of planar graphs, in some sense, in order to reconstruct the state sum invariants associated with the $E_6$ subfactor, and give an elementary proof of the invariance. We also compute the state sum invariants of all the lens spaces from our reconstruction.
