The main thing happening in my end of the world is that it’s relocated from Europe back to North America. I’m taking up a teaching postdoc position in the Mathematics and Computer Science department at… 1,425 more words

In TQFT Axioms – 1, I shared the axioms for a *topological quantum field theory* as detailed in Kock. Any functor meeting these axioms count. 1,004 more words

To continue from the previous post…

**Twisted Differential Cohomology**

Ulrich Bunke gave a talk introducing differential cohomology theories, and Thomas Nikolaus gave one about a twisted version of such theories (unfortunately, perhaps in the wrong order). 2,156 more words

So I spent a few weeks at the Erwin Schrodinger Institute in Vienna, doing a short residence as part of the program “Modern Trends in Topological Quantum Field Theory… 1,674 more words

In parts I and II, I defined the notions of manifolds and cobordisms which make up some of the mathematical machinery for the general relativity side of topological quantum field theory. 321 more words

Topological quantum field theory is an interest of mine which has grown in intensity over the last year. I have, however, made the unfortunate mistake of attempting to describe some of these concepts to family and friends with results ranging from eyes-glazed-over incomprehension to “That’s really cool but my brain hurts now.” As a result of this, I have decided to try to improve my exposition by way of writing a cursory introduction to the subject requiring little more than a familiarity with sets, functions, and vector spaces. 401 more words
