Plucking polynomial: Motivated by and applied to knot theory, q-polynomial invariant of rooted trees

We describe in this talk a new invariant of rooted trees and rooted graphs. We argue that the invariant is interesting on it own, and that it has connections to knot theory and homological algebra. Since this invariant is defined in simple terms, after this talk, we invite everyone interested to take part in developing its further properties and connections to other disciplines of mathematics; possibly, to statistical mechanics and combinatorial biology.
