The Gukov–Manolescu series, denoted by F_K, is a conjectural invariant of knot complements that, in a sense, analytically continues the colored Jones polynomials. In this paper we use the large color R-matrix to study F_K for some simple links. Specifically, we give a definition of F_K for positive braid knots, and compute F_K for various knots and links. As a corollary, we present a class of “strange identities” for positive braid knots.
