M-theoretic genesis of topological phases
Dongmin Gang, APCTP, Postech,
Meeting ID: 924 0247 2179

I will talk about a novel way of constructing (2+1)d topological phases using M-theory. They emerge as macroscopic world-volume theory of M5-branes wrapped on non-hyperbolic 3-manifolds. After explaining the algorithm of extracting modular structures of the topological phase  from topological data of the 3-manifold, I will discuss the possibility of full classification of topological orders via the geometrical construction.
