How to calculate the Witten-Reshetikhin-Turaev invariants from a triangulation?

I'm interested in the Witten-Reshetikhin-Turaev invariants for 3-manifolds, and in particular, how to calculate them from a triangulation of the 3-manifold (recall that as they were first introduced, ...

Free symmetric monoidal $(\infty,n)$-categories with duals

The reading of (Hopkins-)Lurie's On the Classification of Topological Field Theories (arXiv:0905.0465) suggests that a stronger version of the cobordism hypothesis should hold; namely, that (under ...

(3,2,1)-TQFTs and Verlinde algebras

Given a modular category $\mathcal{C}$ there are two natural ways to get a Frobenius algebra out of $\mathcal{C}$. One is to take the Verlinde algebra (or `fusion algebra') of $\mathcal{C}$. The other ...

Relation between fully-extended TQFT and a “topless” TQFT

Consider 3-dimensional TQFTs for example. One version of them is the 3-2-1-0 fully extended TQFT. Do we have another version: 2-1-0 extended "TQFT"? If yes, do we have an example of 2-1-0 extended ...

Bosonic topological orders and unitary fully dualizable fully extended TQFT

I would like to ask if the following statement can be true: bosonic topological orders in $n$-dimensional space-time 1-to-1 correspond to unitary fully dualizable fully extended TQFT in $n$-dimensions....
