  journal={arXiv: High Energy Physics - Theory},
An analysis about the antisymmetric tensor matter fields Avdeev-Chizhov theory in a curved space-time is performed. We show, in a curved spacetime, that the Avdeev-Chizhov theory can be seen as a kind of a $\lambda\phi^{4}$ theory for a "complex self-dual" field. This relationship between Avdeev-Chizhov theory and $\lambda\phi^{4}$ theory simplify the study of tensor matter fields in a curved space-time. The energy-momentum tensor for matter fields is computed. 



Exactly soluble diffeomorphism invariant theories

A class of diffeomorphism invariant theories is described for which the Hilbert space of quantum states can be explicitly constructed. These theories can be formulated in any dimension and include

A quantum field theoretic description of linking numbers and their generalization

It is shown that the linking number of two surfaces of dimensionp andn−p−1 in ann dimensional manifold has a natural description in terms of the two-point funciton of a simple topological field

Topological Field Theory

These are notes on a lunch talk of the Institute for Theoretical Physics/Spinoza Institute. Topological field theory deals with field theories (TFT’s) that do not depend on small deformations of the
