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 algebras or n ‐disk stacks. In this work, we prove a precise formulation of this idea, giving an axiomatic characterization of factorization homology with coefficients in n ‐disk algebras in terms of a generalization of the Eilenberg–Steenrod axioms for singular homology. Each such theory gives rise to a… 

Factorization homology of stratified spaces

This work forms a foundational study of factorization homology, or topological chiral homology, at the generality of stratified spaces with tangential structures. Examples of such factorization

Topological orders and factorization homology

In the study of 2d (the space dimension) topological orders, it is well-known that bulk excitations are classified by unitary modular tensor categories. But these categories only describe the local

On D-modules of categories I

A theorem of Goodwillie [11] shows that the periodic cyclic homology has homotopy invariance in characteristic zero. Getzler [9] constructs, under a suitable condition, a flat connection on the

Equivariant localization in factorization homology and applications in mathematical physics II: Gauge theory applications

We give an account of the theory of factorization spaces, categories, functors, and algebras, following the approach of [Ras1]. We apply these results to give geometric constructions of factorization

Betti numbers and stability for configuration spaces via factorization homology

Using factorization homology, we realize the rational homology of the unordered configuration spaces of an arbitrary manifold $M$, possibly with boundary, as the homology of a Lie algebra constructed

Higher Categorical and Operadic Concepts for Orbifold Constructions - A Study at the Interface of Topology and Representation Theory

The notion of a topological field theory lies at the interface of topology, algebra and mathematical physics. In the three-dimensional case, it is intimately related to representation theory. In this

Higher enveloping algebras

We provide spectral Lie algebras with enveloping algebras over the operad of little $G$-framed $n$-dimensional disks for any choice of dimension $n$ and structure group $G$, and we describe these

Notes on factorization algebras, factorization homology and applications

These notes are an expanded version of two series of lectures given at the winter school in mathematical physics at les Houches and at the Vietnamese Institute for Mathematical Sciences. They are an

A Classification of Modular Functors via Factorization Homology

Modular functors are traditionally defined as systems of projective representations of mapping class groups of surfaces that are compatible with gluing. They can formally be described as modular

Equivariant localization in factorization homology and applications in mathematical physics I: Foundations

We develop a theory of equivariant factorization algebras on varieties with an action of a connected algebraic group $G$, extending the definitions of Francis-Gaitsgory [FG] and Beilinson-Drinfeld

From manifolds to invariants of En-algebras

This thesis is the first step in an investigation of an interesting class of invariants of En-algebras which generalize topological Hochschild homology. The main goal of this thesis is to simply give

We study the higher Hochschild functor, factorization algebras and their relationship with topological chiral homology. To this end, we emphasize that the higher Hochschild complex is a functor sSet∞

The algebraic world of associative algebras has many deep connections with the geometric world of two-dimensional surfaces. Recently, D. Tamarkin discovered that the operad of chains of the little

We study the interaction between geometric operations on stacks and algebraic operations on their categories of sheaves. We work in the general setting of derived algebraic geometry: our basic

ON THE Q-CONSTRUCTION FOR EXACT ∞-CATEGORIES

We prove that the algebraic K-theory of an exact ∞-category can be computed via an ∞-categorical variant of the Q-construction. This construction yields a quasicategory whose weak homotopy type is a

Embeddings from the point of view of immersion theory

Let M and N be smooth manifolds without boundary. Immersion theory suggests that an understanding of the space of smooth embeddings emb(M,N) should come from an analysis of the cofunctor V |-->
