Abstract

The workshop will concern the latest developments in the mathematical study of quantum field theories. The focus will be on the interplay among topics such as higher category theory, as illustrated by the cobordism hypothesis, conformal field theory, tensor categories describing the quantum symmetries, and the relation to topological phases of matter.
