Higher Lie Groups and Quantum Field Theory
Speaker: Adrian Ocneanu, Penn State
Abstract: Nonâ€“Âperturbative QFT models require that spaceâ€“time be filled with mathematical operations, or intertwiners. Usual mathematics provides data for 1+1 dimensions, such as CFT or the surface of a string. We describe higher mathematical structures and their crystallography for which operations would fill the physical 3+1 dimensional space.
