String-Math Seminar: 3D TQFTs from Argyres-Douglas theories

Seminar | October 22 | 2-3 p.m. | 402 LeConte Hall

I will describe a construction which, for a given \(4d\), \(N=2\) Argyres-Douglas SCFT, seems to produce a three-dimensional TQFT, whose underlying modular tensor category coincides with that of a \(2d\) chiral algebra of the parent \(4d\), \(N=2\) theory.
