The skein algebra of arcs and links and the decorated Teichmüller space. (English) Zbl 1290.53080

This paper extends the notion of skein algebra for a punctured surface and relates this notion to geometric structures. Let us recall that the skein module was introduced independently by Turaev and Przytycki as a generalization of the Jones polynomial of a link in \(S^3\). In this work, the authors include arcs in the definition of the skein algebra and define a generalized link.
