Topological Field Theory in dimension 3

I will give an overview of some aspects of 3d TFT, from the Turaev-Viro and Reshetikin-Turaev invariants of oriented 3-manifolds, to the more recent classifications of fully extended theories in terms of fusion categories and once extended theories in terms of Modular Tensor Categories.

Current organizers: Roger Picken, Marko Stošić.
