Title: Gauge Theory And Khovanov Homology

Abstract: I will review a gauge theory approach to Khovanov
homology, with a somewhat different approach from what I have
followed in previous lectures (some of which can be found on the arXiv).
The goal will be to make contact with approaches based on Fukaya
categories. I will also explain a little about the physics-based construction
that motivates this approach.
