I will describe the relation between the colored HOMFLY-PT invariants of torus knots and the characters of certain representations of rational Cherednik algebras. A conjectural lift of this relation to Khovanov-Rozansky homology will be also discussed. No knowledge of Cherednik algebras will be assumed, all necessary definitions will be given in the talk.
