Representation Theory and Mathematical Physics Seminar: Globalization of Split AKSZ Sigma Models in the BV-BFV Formalism

Seminar | April 24 | 3-4 p.m. | 736 Evans Hall

I give an introduction to the BV-BFV formalism and discuss the setting of certain AKSZ theories. Moreover, I describe a globalization procedure using concepts of formal geometry, which extends the Quantum Master Equation for manifolds with boundary.
