Spin-cobordisms, surgeries and fermionic modular bootstrap

  title={Spin-cobordisms, surgeries and fermionic modular bootstrap},
  author={Andrea Grigoletto and Pavel Putrov},
We consider general fermionic quantum field theories with a global finite group symmetry G, focusing on the case of 2-dimensions and torus spacetime. The modular transformation properties of the family of partition functions with different backgrounds is determined by the ’t Hooft anomaly of G and fermion parity. For a general possibly non-abelian G we provide a method to determine the modular transformations directly from the bulk 3d invertible topological quantum field theory (iTQFT…

Anomalies of fermionic CFTs via cobordism and bootstrap
We study constraints on the space of d = 2 fermionic CFTs as a function of non-perturbative anomalies exhibited under a fermionic discrete symmetry group G , focusing our attention also on cases
Global Anomalies and Bordism Invariants in One Dimension
We consider massless Majorana fermion systems with G = ZN , SO(N), and O(N) symmetry in one-dimensional spacetime. In these theories, phase ambiguities of the partition functions are given as the


Fermionic Finite-Group Gauge Theories and Interacting Symmetric/Crystalline Orders via Cobordisms
We formulate a family of spin Topological Quantum Field Theories (spin-TQFTs) as fermionic generalization of bosonic Dijkgraaf–Witten TQFTs. They are obtained by gauging G -equivariant invertible
Higher anomalies, higher symmetries, and cobordisms I: classification of higher-symmetry-protected topological states and their boundary fermionic/bosonic anomalies via a generalized cobordism theory
By developing a generalized cobordism theory, we explore the higher global symmetries and higher anomalies of quantum field theories and interacting fermionic/bosonic systems in condensed matter. Our

Classification and construction of symmetry protected topological (SPT) phases in interacting boson and fermion systems have become a fascinating theoretical direction in recent years. It has been
Topological gauge theories and group cohomology
We show that three dimensional Chern-Simons gauge theories with a compact gauge groupG (not necessarily connected or simply connected) can be classified by the integer cohomology groupH4(BG,Z). In a

We discuss (2 + 1)D topological phases on non-orientable spatial surfaces, such as Mobius strip, real projective plane and Klein bottle, etc, which are obtained by twisting the parent topological

In the framework of Atiyah’s axioms of topological quantum field theory with unitarity, we give a direct proof of the fact that symmetry protected topological phases without Hall effects are
Spin from defects in two-dimensional quantum field theory
We build two-dimensional quantum field theories on spin surfaces starting from theories on oriented surfaces with networks of topological defect lines and junctions. The construction uses a
Construction and classification of symmetry protected topological phases in interacting fermion systems
The classification and lattice model construction of symmetry protected topological (SPT) phases in interacting fermion systems are very interesting but challenging. In this paper, we give a

We study lattice constructions of gapped fermionic phases of matter. We show that the construction of fermionic Symmetry Protected Topological orders by Gu and Wen has a hidden dependence on a
