Informal seminar: Chern-Simons theory on S^1 (part II) and BV-formalism

Knots, Strings, Symplectic Geometry and Dualities

21 September 16:00 - 18:00

Pavel Hajek - Universität Hamburg

I will use the results of my first talk to construct the Chern-Simons IBL-infinity structure for S^1 explicitly and discuss its relation to string topology. I will then present a BV-formulation of the theory. It leads to a proof of the invariance of the structure on choices and it indicates how Chern-Simons IBL-infinity theory fits in the algebraic framework of string field theory.
