Crane-Yetter TFT, quantum groups and skein modules - I
Introductory Workshop: Higher Categories and Categorification February 10, 2020 - February 14, 2020
Location: MSRI: Simons Auditorium
17B37 - Quantum groups (quantized enveloping algebras) and related deformations [See also 16T20, 20G42, 81R50, 82B23]
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.
