Quantum Chern–Simons Theories on Cylinders: BV-BFV Partition Functions

We compute partition functions of Chern–Simons type theories for cylindrical spacetimes $$I \times \Sigma $$ I × Σ , with I an interval and $$\dim \Sigma = 4l+2$$ dim Σ = 4 l + 2

A Higher Stacky Perspective on Chern–Simons Theory

The first part of this text is a gentle exposition of some basic constructions and results in the extended prequantum theory of Chern–Simons-type gauge field theories. We explain in some detail how

CLASSICAL AND QUANTUM ASPECTS OF FIVE-DIMENSIONAL CHERN SIMONS GAUGE THEORY

In this paper, we investigate the classical and quantum aspects of five-dimensional Chern–Simons theory. As a constrained Hamiltonian system we compute the Dirac brackets among the canonical

Gluing I: Integrals and Symmetries

We review some aspects of the cutting and gluing law in local quantum field theory. In particular, we emphasize the description of gluing by a path integral over a space of polarized boundary

Gluing. Part I. Integrals and symmetries

We review some aspects of the cutting and gluing law in local quantum field theory (QFT) and study it from a new point of view. In particular, we emphasize the description of gluing by a path

Semiclassical Quantization of Classical Field Theories

These lectures are an introduction to formal semiclassical quantization of classical field theory. First we develop the Hamiltonian formalism for classical field theories on space time with boundary.

Towards Holography in the BV-BFV Setting

We show how the BV-BFV formalism provides natural solutions to descent equations and discuss how it relates to the emergence of holographic counterparts of given gauge theories. Furthermore, by means

The Chern-Simons gauge theory is studied using a functional integral quantization. This leads to a differential equation for expectations of Wilson lines. The solution of this differential equation

In Batalin–Vilkovisky formalism, a classical mechanical system is specified by means of a solution to the classical master equation. Geometrically, such a solution can be considered as a QP-manifold,
