Title : TQFT and invariants of manifolds and algebras
Time : 2023-02-03 (Fri) 11:00 - 12:00
Place : Seminar Room 638, Institute of Mathematics (NTU Campus)
Abstract: We will provide a crash course of topological quantum field theory, explain how it produces interesting invariants for both spaces and algebras, and provide a few examples. If time permits, I will talk about my work on categorical invariants from the Crane-Yetter model.
