A brief review of the development of Chern-Simons gauge theory since its relation to knot theory was discovered in 1988 is presented. The presentation is done guided by a dictionary which relates knot theory concepts to quantum field theory ones. From the basic objects in both contexts the quantities leading to knot and link invariants are introduced and analyzed. The quantum field theory approaches that have been developed to compute these quantities are reviewed. Perturbative approaches leaddoi:10.1007/978-3-0348-8266-8_40 fatcat:uv7bokf5lvba5gckgkfbgqtacy
