Geometry and Topology Seminar: The Dai-Freed theorem and anomalies

Presented by IƱaki Garcia Etxebarria, Durham University

14 March 2019 13:00 in CM301

The Dai-Freed theorem provides a bridge between the theory of
bordism and Quantum Field Theory (and more specifically, anomalies). I
will review how these two areas are related, and then summarise some
computations of bordism groups of classifying spaces of Lie groups and
cyclic groups that we have performed recently, which are of particular
interest for applications to four dimensional physics.
