Torus knots and the rational DAHA

We conjecturally extract the triply graded Khovanov-Rozansky homology of the (m;n) torus knot from the unique finite-dimensional simple representation of the rational DAHA of type A, rank n - 1, and central character m/n. The conjectural differentials of Gukov, Dunfield, and the third author receive an explicit algebraic expression in this picture, yielding a prescription for the doubly graded Khovanov-Rozansky homologies. We match our conjecture to previous conjectures of the first author relating knot homology to q; t-Catalan numbers and to previous conjectures of the last three authors relating knot homology to Hilbert schemes on singular curves.
