Lectures on Tensor Categories and Modular Functors
by Bojko Bakalov, Alexander Kirillov

Publisher: American Mathematical Society 2000
ISBN/ASIN: 0821826867
ISBN-13: 9780821826867
Number of pages: 221

Description:
This book gives an exposition of the relations among the following three topics: monoidal tensor categories (such as a category of representations of a quantum group), 3-dimensional topological quantum field theory, and 2-dimensional modular functors (which naturally arise in 2-dimensional conformal field theory). It would be suitable as a course text at the advanced-graduate level.
