Supergroups, q-series and 3-manifolds

We introduce supergroup analogues of 3-manifold invariants $\hat{Z}$, also known as homological blocks, which were previously considered for ordinary compact semisimple Lie groups. We focus on

We present a relation between the Witt invariants of 3-manifolds and the ˆ Z -invariants. It provides an alternative approach to compute the Witt invariants of 3-manifolds, which were orig-inally

Non-semisimple TQFT's and BPS q-series

We propose and in some cases prove a precise relation between 3-manifold invariants associated with quantum groups at roots of unity and at generic $q$. Both types of invariants are labeled by extra

3-Manifolds and VOA Characters

By studying the properties of q-series Ẑ-invariants, we develop a dictionary between 3-manifolds and vertex algebras. In particular, we generalize previously known entries in this dictionary to Lie

A series invariant of a complement of a knot was introduced recently. The invariant for several prime knots up to ten crossings have been explicitly computed. We present the first example of a

Lattice cohomology and $q$-series invariants of $3$-manifolds

An invariant is introduced for negative definite plumbed 3-manifolds equipped with a spin-structure. It unifies and extends two theories with rather different origins and structures. One theory is



BPS invariants for 3-manifolds at rational level K

We consider the Witten-Reshetikhin-Turaev invariants or Chern-Simons partition functions at or around roots of unity q=e2πiK\documentclass[12pt]{minimal} \usepackage{amsmath} \usepackage{wasysym}

3d modularity

We find and propose an explanation for a large variety of modularity-related symmetries in problems of 3-manifold topology and physics of 3d N\documentclass[12pt]{minimal} \usepackage{amsmath}

3d-3d correspondence for mapping tori

One of the main challenges in 3d-3d correspondence is that no existent approach offers a complete description of 3d N\documentclass[12pt]{minimal} \usepackage{amsmath} \usepackage{wasysym}

Higher depth quantum modular forms and plumbed 3-manifolds

In this paper, we study new invariants $$\widehat{Z}_{{{\varvec{a}}}}(q)$$ Z ^ a ( q ) attached to plumbed 3-manifolds that were introduced by Gukov, Pei, Putrov, and Vafa. These remarkable q -series

Localized Donaldson-Thomas theory of surfaces

Let $S$ be a projective simply connected complex surface and $\mathcal{L}$ be a line bundle on $S$. We study the moduli space of stable compactly supported 2-dimensional sheaves on the total spaces

A two-variable series for knot complements

The physical 3d $\mathcal{N}=2$ theory T[Y] was previously used to predict the existence of some 3-manifold invariants $\hat{Z}_{a}(q)$ that take the form of power series with integer coefficients,

Walls, lines, and spectral dualities in 3d gauge theories

A bstractIn this paper we analyze various half-BPS defects in a general three dimensional $ \mathcal{N} $ = 2 supersymmetric gauge theory $ \mathcal{T} $. They correspond to closed paths in SUSY

Fermionic symmetry protected topological phases and cobordisms

A bstractIt has been proposed recently that interacting Symmetry Protected Topological Phases can be classified using cobordism theory. We test this proposal in the case of Fermionic SPT phases with

On the Pin(2)-Equivariant Monopole Floer Homology of Plumbed 3-Manifolds

We compute the Pin(2)-equivariant monopole Floer homology for the class of plumbed 3-manifolds with at most one "bad" vertex (in the sense of Ozsvath and Szabo). We show that for these manifolds, the

BPS spectra and 3-manifold invariants

We provide a physical definition of new homological invariants [Formula: see text] of 3-manifolds (possibly, with knots) labeled by abelian flat connections. The physical system in question involves
