High Energy Theory Seminar
Meeting ID: 924 0247 2179
I will talk about a novel way of constructing (2+1)d topological phases using M-theory. They emerge as macroscopic world-volume theory of M5-branes wrapped on non-hyperbolic 3-manifolds. After explaining the algorithm of extracting modular structures of the topological phase from topological data of the 3-manifold, I will discuss the possibility of full classification of topological orders via the geometrical construction.
