Crane-Yetter TFT, quantum groups and skein modules - I
Location: MSRI: Simons Auditorium
These lectures will serve as an introduction to a class of 4-dimensional topological field theories arising from ribbon categories. I will explain their relationship to the Crane-Yetter state sum, Chern-Simons theory, geometric Langlands program and skein modules.
