Abstract: Continuing. We have constructed a solution to the Yang-Baxter Equation that generalizes the solution corresponding to the bracket polynomial, but supported by any ordered index set. We have used this to construct state sum models for the Homflypt polynomial. We continue this discussion and its relationship with Hecke algebras.
