The Teichm\"uller TQFT

  title={The Teichm\"uller TQFT},
  author={J{\o}rgen Ellegaard Andersen and Rinat Kashaev},
  journal={arXiv: Quantum Algebra},
We review our construction of the Teichmuller TQFT. We recall our volume conjecture for this TQFT and the examples for which this conjecture has been established. We end the paper with a brief review of our new formulation of the Teichmuller TQFT together with some anticipated future developments.

Towards Super Teichm\"uller Spin TQFT

The quantization of the Teichm\"uller theory has led to the formulation of the so-called Teichm\"uller TQFT for 3-manifolds. In this paper we initiate the study of "supersymmetrization" of the



A TQFT from Quantum Teichmüller Theory

By using quantum Teichmüller theory, we construct a one parameter family of TQFTs on the categroid of admissible leveled shaped 3-manifolds.

Liouville central charge in quantum Teichmuller theory

In the quantum Teichmuller theory, based on Penner coordinates, the mapping class groups of punctured surfaces are represented projectively. The case of a genus three surface with one puncture is

Asymptotic aspects of the Teichmüller TQFT

We calculate the knot invariant coming from the Teichm\"{u}ller TQFT [AK1]. Specifically we calculate the knot invariant for the complement of the knot $6_1$ both in the original [AK1] and the new

Faddeev’s Quantum Dilogarithm and State-Integrals on Shaped Triangulations

Using Faddeev’s quantum dilogarithm function, we review our description of a one parameter family of state-integrals on shaped triangulated pseudo 3-manifolds. This invariant is part of a certain

Discrete Heisenberg-Weyl Group and modular group

It is shown that the generators of two discrete Heisenberg-Weyl groups with irrational rotation numbers θ and −1/θ generate the whole algebraB of operators onL2(R). The natural action of the modular

The Nielsen-Thurston classification of mapping classes is determined by TQFT

For each fixed n>=2 we show how the Nielsen-Thurston classification of mapping classes for a closed surface of genus g>=2 is determined by the sequence of quantum SU(n) representations, when one

Quantization of Teichmüller Spaces and the Quantum Dilogarithm

The Teichmüller space of punctured surfaces with the Weil–Petersson symplectic structure and the action of the mapping class group is realized as the Hamiltonian reduction of a finite-dimensional

The decorated Teichmüller space of punctured surfaces

A principal ℝ+5-bundle over the usual Teichmüller space of ans times punctured surface is introduced. The bundle is mapping class group equivariant and admits an invariant foliation. Several

Ribbon graphs and their invaraints derived from quantum groups

The generalization of Jones polynomial of links to the case of graphs inR3 is presented. It is constructed as the functor from the category of graphs to the category of representations of the quantum


The cyclic quantum dilogarithm is interpreted as a cyclic 6j-symbol of the Weyl algebra, considered as a Borel subalgebra BUq(sl(2)). Using modified 6j-symbols, an invariant of triangulated links in
