On topological 2-dimensional field theories
Speaker: Florin Dumitrescu, Penn State
Abstract: Topological 1-dimensional field theories over a manifold M are in one-to-one correspondence with vector bundles with connections over M. We show that topological 2-dimensional field theories over M are characterized by vector bundles with connections over LM, the loop space of M, satisfying some "Frobenius properties".
