We study quantization schemes on a Kähler manifold and relate several interesting structures. We first construct Fedosov’s star products on a Kähler manifold X as quantizations of Kapranov’sExpand
BV Quantization of the Rozansky–Witten Model
We investigate the perturbative aspects of Rozansky–Witten’s 3d $${\sigma}$$σ-model (Rozansky and Witten in Sel Math 3(3):401–458, 1997) using Costello’s approach to the Batalin–Vilkovisky (BV)Expand
A holography theory of Poisson sigma model and deformation quantization
We construct a Chern-Simons type of theory using the $l_\infty$ algebra encoded by a Poisson structure on arbitrary Riemann surfaces with boundaries. A deformation quantization within theExpand
Constraints in the BV formalism: six-dimensional supersymmetry and its twists
We formulate the abelian six-dimensional $\mathcal{N}=(2,0)$ theory perturbatively, in a generalization of the Batalin-Vilkovisky formalism. Using this description, we compute the holomorphic andExpand
Equivariant factorization homology of global quotient orbifolds
We introduce equivariant factorization homology, extending the axiomatic framework of Ayala-Francis to encompass multiplicative invariants of manifolds equipped with finite group actions. Examples ofExpand
A Vertex Superalgebra via Spin Factorization Algebras with Point Defects
by Jennifer Lea Garbett Factorization algebras are one “approximation” to physicists’ quantum field theories, and spin factorization algebras with point defects are a generalization of factorizationExpand
A mathematical analysis of the axial anomaly
As is well known to physicists, the axial anomaly of the massless free fermion in Euclidean signature is given by the index of the corresponding Dirac operator. We use the Batalin–Vilkovisky (BV)Expand
BD algebras and group cohomology
BD algebras (Beilinson-Drinfeld algebras) are algebraic structures which are defined similarly to BV algebras (Batalin-Vilkovisky algebras). The equation defining the BD operator has the sameExpand
Extended Functorial Field Theories and Anomalies in Quantum Field Theories
We develop a general framework for the description of anomalies using extended functorial field theories extending previous work by Freed and Monnier. In this framework, anomalies are described byExpand
Superconformal algebras and holomorphic field theories
We compute the holomorphic twists of four-dimensional superconformal algebras, and argue that the resulting algebras act naturally by holomorphic vector fields on holomorphically twistedExpand

Factorization homology of topological manifolds
Factorization homology theories of topological manifolds, after Beilinson, Drinfeld and Lurie, are homology-type theories for topological $n$-manifolds whose coefficient systems are $n$-disk algebrasExpand
