    With David Corfield and Hisham Sati we are finalizing an article:



    The title refers to a proof presented, that all fundamental gl(n)-weight systems on horizontal chord diagrams are states with respect to the star-involution of reversion of strands.

    But the bulk of the article rephrases this theorem and its proof as a special case of a more general statement in geometric group theory: characterizing the (non/semi-)positive definite phases of the Cayley distance kernel on the symmetric group.

    Finally, a last section recalls from Sati, Schreiber 2019c the original motivation and interpretation of this result: Under Hypothesis H it proves, from first principles, that a pair of coincident M5-branes (transversal on a pp-wave background, as in the BMN matrix model) indeed do form a (bound) state. This is of course generally expected, but there did not use to be a theory to derive this from first principles.

    Example 3.11

    • should be λ rows(λ)\lambda_{rows(\lambda)} at end of first bracket
    • in 1), should be “labels to fill its first column”
    • in 2) should be “any labelling of the first column”

    We close with briefly explaining

    ’by’ sounds better than ’with’

    Thanks, fixed now locally. I’ll upload after adding a pointer to Jucys’ theorem which we have re-derived…
