String Theory and Homological Invariants for 3-Manifolds

Presented by: 
Cumrun Vafa Harvard University, Harvard University
Date: 
Monday 10th April 2017 -
10:00 to 11:00
Venue: 
INI Seminar Room 1
Abstract: 
In this talk I review the recent progress made in defining homological invariants for 3-manifold using string theory constructions.  This generalizes the constructions of homological invariants for knots using M5 branes, to the case of 3-manifolds.
