Finite symmetries of quantum character stacks

  title={Finite symmetries of quantum character stacks},
  author={Corina Keller and L. Muller},
For a finite group D, we study categorical factorisation homology on oriented surfaces equipped with principal D-bundles, which ‘integrates’ a (linear) balanced braided category A with D-action over those surfaces. For surfaces with at least one boundary component, we identify the value of factorisation homology with the category of modules over an explicit algebra in A, extending the work of Ben-Zvi, Brochier and Jordan to surfaces with D-bundles. Furthermore, we show that the value of… Expand


Integrating quantum groups over surfaces
We apply the mechanism of factorization homology to construct and compute category-valued two-dimensional topological field theories associated to braided tensor categories, generalizing theExpand
The little bundles operad
Hurwitz spaces are homotopy quotients of the braid group action on the moduli space of principal bundles over a punctured plane. By considering a certain model for this homotopy quotient we build anExpand
Loop spaces and representations
We introduce loop spaces (in the sense of derived algebraic geometry) into the representation theory of reductive groups. In particular, we apply the theory developed in our previous paperExpand
Homotopy field theory in dimension 3 and crossed group-categories
A 3-dimensional homotopy quantum field theory (HQFT) can be described as a TQFT for surfaces and 3-cobordisms endowed with homotopy classes of maps into a given space. For a group $\pi$, we introduceExpand
Poisson structure on moduli of flat connections on Riemann surfaces and $r$-matrix
We consider the space of graph connections (lattice gauge fields) which can be endowed with a Poisson structure in terms of a ciliated fat graph. (A ciliated fat graph is a graph with a fixed linearExpand
Geometric quantization of Chern-Simons gauge theory
We present a new construction of the quantum Hubert space of ChernSimons gauge theory using methods which are natural from the threedimensional point of view. To show that the quantum Hubert spaceExpand
Equivariant higher Hochschild homology and topological field theories
We present a version of higher Hochschild homology for spaces equipped with principal bundles for a structure group $G$. As coefficients, we allow $E_\infty$-algebras with $G$-action. For thisExpand
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 factorizationExpand
On the Brauer Groups of Symmetries of Abelian Dijkgraaf–Witten Theories
Symmetries of three-dimensional topological field theories are naturally defined in terms of invertible topological surface defects. Symmetry groups are thus Brauer–Picard groups. We present a gaugeExpand
’t Hooft Anomalies of Discrete Gauge Theories and Non-abelian Group Cohomology
We study discrete symmetries of Dijkgraaf–Witten theories and their gauging in the framework of (extended) functorial quantum field theory. Non-abelian group cohomology is used to describe discreteExpand
