Note that there is a block course given by Anna Beliakova. You have to sign in for this course if you want to get credits. However, the material covered by the block course and by this lecture are independent of one another and it is no problem to follow only the block course or the lecture.

Please put [Lecture Quantum invariants of links] as the subject.

However, please still register yourself online.
