Classifying Extended TQFT and the Cobordism Hypothesis

An overview of the concept of extended field theories, and a look at the role of the Cobordism Hypothesis (now more accurately the Cobordism Theorem) in classification of such theories. Given time the talk will touch on Jacob Lurie's proof of the Cobordism Hypothesis.
