Title:Homological representation of a framed braid group


A framed braid group is a semi-direct product of a braid group and a free abelian group, and graphically it describes braids and twists of ribbons. In this talk, we construct homological representations of the framed braid group. Theses representations contain a generalization of the Lawrence-Krammer-Bigelow representation of the braid group. The construction is motivated by the study of the monodromy representation of the confluent KZ equation.
