Talk on TQFTs and Quantum Invariants of 3-Manifolds at Warsaw

On 27th February I will give an invited seminar in the TQFT study group at the University of Warsaw, in which I will discuss a construction of a 3-dimensional topological quantum field theory (3D-TQFT) in terms of modular functors, from which we obtain a theory of quantum invariants of 3-manifolds with embedded banded links.

Research Visit to the ILLC

From September to November 2008 I am going to visit the ILLC in Amsterdam to work with Yde Venema on coalgebra automata.
