Which 4-manifold invariants can detect the Gluck twist? And, which 3-manifold invariants can detect the difference between surgeries on mutant knots? What is the most powerful topological quantum field theory (TQFT)? Guided by questions like these, we will look for new invariants of 3-manifolds and smooth 4-manifolds. Traditionally, a construction of many such invariants and TQFTs involves a...   More >
