    Topology, Geometry and Quantum Field Theory The definition of conformal field theory Proceedings of the Oxford Symposium in Honour of the 60th Birthday of Graeme SegalCited by:   Papers contained in this volume amplify various aspects of the Freed–Hopkins program, develop some category theory, which lies behind the cobordism hypothesis, the major structure theorem for topological field theories, and relate to Costello's approach to perturbative quantum field theory.

    There is an interpretation of open–closed string field theory in algebraic topology. The interpretation seems to have much of the expected structure but notably lacks the vacuum expectations. All the operations are defined by classical transversal intersection of ordinary cycles and homologies (derived from chains in path spaces) inside Cited by: This is a monograph on geometrical and topological features which arise in quantum field theory. It is well known that when a chiral fermion interacts with a gauge field we have chiral anomaly which corresponds to the fact that divergence of the axial vector current does not vanish. It Price: $

Book description. The symposium held in honour of the 60th birthday of Graeme Segal brought together leading physicists and mathematicians. Its topics were centred around string theory, M-theory, and quantum gravity on the one hand, and K-theory, elliptic cohomology, quantum cohomology and string topology on the other.

Topology, Geometry and Quantum Field Theory. Edited by Ulrike Tillmann; Online ISBN:   This volume covers the proceedings of an international conference held in Oxford in June In addition to articles arising from the conference, the book also contains the famous as-yet-unpublished article by Graeme Segal on the Definition of Conformal Field Theories.

It is ideal as a view of the current state of the art and will appeal to established Cited by: cal (quantum) theories to topology. If we have a theory with some symmetry then we can consider the quotient theory, on factoring out the symmetry.

In-variant states of the original theory become states of the quotient theory but there may also be new states that have to be added. For example if we have a group G of geometric symmetries, then closed strings in. Topology, Geometry and Field Theory. Proceedings of the 31st International Taniguchi Symposium.

Monodromy Representations of Conformal Field Theory and Their Applications (T Kohno) Quantum Groups at Roots of. In recent years topology has firmly established itself as an important part of the physicist's mathematical arsenal.

It has many applications, first of all in quantum field theory, but increasingly also in other areas of physics. The main focus of this book is on the results of quantum field theory that are obtained by topological methods.

I know what the curvature of a connection is, know basic algebraic topology, and have some basic background in quantum field theory.

Perhaps others with different backgrounds will also be interested in a reading list on TQFTs, so feel free to ignore my background and suggest material at a variety of levels. This is a monograph on geometrical and topological features which arise in quantum field theory. It is well known that when a chiral fermion interacts with a gauge field we have chiral anomaly which corresponds to the fact that divergence of the axial vector current does not vanish.

Nash - Differential topology and quantum field theory. This book seems fascinating for those who are really trying to get into the more difficult parts of gauge theory. Topics covered include topological field theories (knots invariants, Floer homology etc), anomalies and conformal field theory.
