DESCRIPTION:Speaker: Chris Elliott\nhosted by Tamas Hausel\nAbstract: The i
dea of topologically twisting a supersymmetric field theory was introduced
in the physics literature in order to generate interesting new examples o
f topological field theories. The idea is very general\, but systematicall
y realising the examples it produces using mathematical models for topolog
ical quantum field theory (such as the functorial axioms of Atiyah-Segal o
r the theory of E_n -algebras) is not always possible. In this talk Ill ex
plain what it means to twist a supersymmetric field theory in the factoriz
ation algebra framework developed by Costello and Gwilliam\, and address t
he question of just how topological these topologically twisted theories r
eally are. This is based on joint work with Pavel Safronov.
