### Does there exist a discrete gauge theory as a TQFT detecting the figure-8 knot?

My question: Does there exist a discrete gauge theory as TQFT detecting the figure-8 knot? By detecting, I mean that computing the path integral (partition function with insertions of the knot/...

### Equivariant L-infinity structure associated to a DGBV algebra

Let $V$ be a differential graded Batalin-Vilkovisky (DGBV) algebra over say $\mathbb{C}$. This means that $V$ is a commutative differential graded algebra (CDGA), with differential $\partial$ of ...

### Chern-Simons and framing dependence$.$

I posted this question to physics.SE last week (cf. here), but it got not attention. I hope it is not too trivial to post it here. According to ref.1, the correlation functions of a Chern-Simons ...

### How is Chern-Simons theory related to Floer homology?

Chern-Simons theory (say, with gauge group $G$) is the quantum theory of the Chern-Simons functional $$CS(A)=\frac{k}{8\pi^2}\int_M \text{Tr}\left(A\wedge dA + \frac{2}{3}A\wedge A \wedge A\right)$$ ...

### Projecting GxG onto subspace with tied irreducible representations

Suppose I have a finite group $G$. With this group, I can associate an ortho-normal Hilbert space spanned by elements of the group $$\mathcal{H} = \{|g\rangle: g \in G \}$$. I could alternatively ...

### How do I calculate the modular fusion category from a given Lie algebra and level in Chern-Simons theory?

In Chern-Simons theory, one has modular fusion categories that are labelled by a Lie algebra and a "level", e.g. $SU(2)_2$ ("$SU(2)$ level $2$"). Physically this modular fusion category describes the ...

### Generalization of Drinfeld double to comodule algebras

Let $\mathcal C$ be a monoidal category. Then $\mathcal C$ is both a left and right module category over itself. Moreover, the Drinfeld centre of $\mathcal C$ can be defined as the category of ...

### Framing dependence of HOMFLY polynomial

I want to understand the framing dependence of the Khovanov-Rozansky homology, and as its first step, I am trying to understand the framing dependence of the HOMFLY polynomial (i.e. quantum $sl(n)$ ...

### Twisted Chern-Simons, and Twisted Wess-Zumino Term

I am asking this question about Chern-Simons theory from the paper "Quantum Field Theory and Jones Polynomial" by Edward Witten. Let $M$ be a closed three dimensional manifold, and $P\rightarrow M$ ...

### What is the mathematical structure of 2d TQFT from the 2d foam category (instead of 2d cobordism category)?

It is well-known that the category of 2d TQFTs is equivalent to the category of commutative Frobenius algebras. What about functors from the 2d foam category (instead of 2d cobordism category) to ...

### 2-morphisms for Bord(n)

I am currently reading in Boundary Conditions for Topological Quantum Field Theories, Anomalies and Projective Modular Functors, and have a (I guess) pretty basic question for my understanding of the (...

### Define the 3d Chern-Simons TQFT on a discrete simplicial complex

Question: What is the challenge and the current status to define the 3d Chern-Simons(-Witten) (CSW) theory on a simplicial complex or on a discrete lattice? (Or is there a no-go or an obstruction ...
