Balanced topological field theories

  title={Balanced topological field theories},
  author={R. Dijkgraaf and G. Moore},
We describe a class of topological eld theories called \balanced topological eld theories." These theories are associated to moduli problems with vanishing virtual dimension and calculate the Euler character of various moduli spaces. We show that these theories are closely related to the geometry and equivariant cohomology of \iterated superspaces" that carry two di erentials. We nd the most general action for these theories, which turns out to de ne Morse theory on eld space. We illustrate the… CONTINUE READING
