Quantum Teichmüller space was first introduced by Chekhov and Fock as a version of 2+1d quantum gravity. The definition was translated over time into an algebra of curves on surfaces, which coincides with an extension of the Kauffman bracket skein algebra. In this talk, we will discuss the relation between the Teichmüller space and the Kauffman bracket, and time permitting, the quantized version of this correspondence.
