# Can the HOMFLY polynomial be obtained from the Kauffman Polynomial for torus knots?

This is essentially a yes/no/reference request question.

Let me first just ask my question: Is there a known relationship between the HOMFLY and Kauffman polynomials of torus knots? In particular, is there a published result which says that given the Kauffman polynomial of a torus knot, I can compute its HOMFLY polynomial? If so, any reference would be appreciated.
