Executive Summary
I have done Ph.D. from University of Warwick, under the supervision of Dr. Dmitriy Rumynin. I am working in Homotopy Quantum Field Theory (HQFT) in dimension 2 and dimension 3. Here is an abstract for my work:
Abstract for my work:
There are basically two parts one for dimension 2 and the other for dimension 3. In dimension one there is a generalisation of the definition of an $n$-dimensional HQFT in terms of a monoidal functor from a rigid symmetric monoidal category $X_n$ to any monoidal category $A$. In particular, 2-dimensional HQFTs with target $K(G,1)$ taking values in $A$ are generated from any Turaev $G$-crossed system in $A$ and vice versa. This is the generalisation of the theory given by Turaev into a purely categorical set-up.

In dimension two there is a generalisation of the concept of a group-coalgebra, Hopf group- coalgebra, crossed Hopf group-coalgebra and quasitriangular Hopf group-coalgebra in the case of a group scheme. Quantum double of a crossed Hopf group-scheme coalgebra is constructed in the affine case and conjectured for the more general non-affine case. We can construct 3-dimensional HQFTs from modular crossed $G$-categories. The category of representations of a quantum double of a crossed Hopf group-coalgebra is a ribbon (quasitriangular) crossed group-category, and hence can generate 3-dimensional HQFTs under certain conditions if the category becomes modular. However, the problem of systematic finding of modular crossed $G$-categories is largely open.
