My background is in quantum topology, and I am exploring low dimensional topological formalisms for information and for computation. I blog on mathematics that interests me at Low Dimensional Topology.

comment Quotes from Connes
I've added a citation for the first remark. Could not locate the second. Please have a look, and let us know if the context in the original source doesn't answer your first question. With regard to your second question, in dimension $\geq 5$, there are at most finitely many distinct smooth manifolds with the same homotopy type and Pontryagin classes.

comment Why are Witten-Reshetikhin-Turaev invariants expected to be integral?
For the Jones Polynomial, as you mention, the conceptual explanation might be that we have alternative (non-TQFT) constructions in which integrality is evident.
