Shifting homomorphisms in quandle cohomology and skeins of cocycle knot invariants
Homomorphisms on quandle cohomology groups that raise the dimensions by one are studied in relation to the cocycle state-sum invariants of knots and knotted surfaces. Skein relations are also studied. Comment: 14 pages; 6 Figures. Minor corrections: The main application of one proposition remains true, but the proposition has been downgraded to a conjecture
