|Place:||Seminar Room D|
FIRST 20 Minutes:
In this introductory talk for a general audience I will explain some of the relations between Quantum Field Theory and Topology and how each informs the other in unexpected ways.
In this talk I will discuss generalizations of the concept of Frobenius Algebra (Frobenius Manifold, etc) motivated initially by String Topology. I will review first the classical story and then go on to report on work by Gonzalez, Segovia, Uribe and myself.
