David Jordan from Edinburgh will be speaking. more information...
The presentation title is "Skein theory in the geometric Langlands TFT."
This meeting takes place via Zoom.
The event description is as follows:
I will overview several appearances (some recently established, some conjectural) of skein theory in the so-called quantum geometric Langlands fully extended TFT. The talk will be mostly elementary, and I'll highlight an application to a conjecture of Witten concerning the finite-dimensionality of skein modules of 3-manifolds at generic values of the quantum parameter.
