Sebastian Schulz, RLM 9.166: The geometry and physics of knots
Monday, September 17, 2018, 12:00pm - 01:00pm
The Jones polynomial is an important invariant of a knot (i.e.an embedding of a circle in 3-space), and one of Witten's achievementsis its interpretation in a QFT setting. Following a book of thesame title by Atiyah, I will indicate how to construct the TQFTthat produces this knot invariant, a story which despite itstopological nature contains rich geometry.
