Ingo Runkel (U Hamburg): Spin from defects in two-dimensional field theory

Ingo Runkel (U Hamburg)


Abstract:  Studying defects in quantum field theories has many interesting applications. I will consider two dimensional topological and conformal field theories defined on oriented surfaces in the presence of line defects. It turns out that with the help of a certain type of line defect one can use the original theory to obtain a new theory which is defined on surfaces with spin structure. This is joint work with Sebastian Novak
