Kashaev and Reshetikhin previously described a way to define holonomy invariants of knots using quantum sl2 at a root of unity. These are generalized quantum invariants depend both on a knot K and a representation of the fundamental group of its complement into SL2(C); equivalently, we can think of KR(K) as associating to each knot a function on (a slight generalization of) its character variety. In this paper we clarify some details of their construction. In particular, we show that for K a… Expand
