  • Significance There are two main classes of 3D topological field theories: Turaev–Viro theories, associated to fusion categories, and Reshetikhin–Turaev theories, associated to modular tensor categories. Since the groundbreaking work by Lurie on the cobordism hypothesis, it has been a major open question to know which topological field theories (TFTs) extend down to points. Turaev–Viro theories can be extended down to points. But for most Reshetikhin–Turaev theories, including Chern–Simons… CONTINUE READING
