Finite-dimensionality of skein modules

Vortrag von Dr. Pavel Safronov
Datum: 25.09.19   Zeit: 10.15 - 11.45   Raum: Y27H25

In this talk I will explain what skein modules of 3-manifolds are and how they fit in the framework of topological field theory and factorization homology. I will also outline a proof that skein modules of closed 3-manifolds are finite-dimensional, proving a conjecture of Witten. This is joint work with Sam Gunningham and David Jordan
