I will talk about some progress in proving the Degree Conjecture for torus knots. The conjecture states that the degree of a colored Jones polynomial colored by an irreducible representation of a simple Lie algebra g is locally a quadratic quasi-polynomial. This is joint work with Stavros Garoufalidis.
