Natural mathematicians have just recently began a rigorous learn of topological quantum box theories (TQFTs). Ocneanu, particularly, confirmed that subfactors yield TQFTs that supplement the Turaev-Viro building. beforehand, although, it's been tough to discover an account of this paintings that's either precise and accessible.

Topological Quantum box Theories from Subfactors presents a self-contained, specific description of Ocneanu's building It introduces and discusses its numerous constituents with the certain benefit of utilising merely real triangulations. The authors start with axioms for a TQFT, battle through the Turaev-Viro prescription for developing this kind of TQFT, and eventually paintings via Ocneanu's approach to beginning with a finite intensity hyperfinite subfactor" and acquiring the information had to invoke the Turaev-Viro machine.

The authors offer a truly concise therapy of finite components of kind and their bimodules and comprise information and calculations for all buildings. in addition they current, probably for the 1st time in ebook shape, notions corresponding to quantization functors and fusion algebras. obtainable to graduate scholars and others simply starting to discover this interesting subject, Topological Quantum box Theories from Subfactors may also be of curiosity to researchers in either arithmetic and theoretical physics.

Example text

We shall write Ω for the vector in L2 (M ) which corresponds to the identity element 1 of M (where M is thought of as a dense subspace of L2 (M )). It can be shown that the natural M − M bimodule structure of the algebra M extends to an M − M bimodule structure on the Hilbert space L2 (M ). ) It should be clear that Ω is a cyclic vector for πl (meaning that {πl (x)Ω : x ∈ M } is a dense subspace of L2 (M )), and that πl (x)Ω, Ω = trM (x) . , M∗ is separable, as a Banach space). ) For convenience, we shall identify M as a von Neumann subalgebra of L(H1 ) (where we write H1 = L2 (M )) via the left-regular representation πl discussed in (xi) above.

1), P ξ, η = ξ, η , ∀ξ, η ∈ X 0 . Since X 0 is dense in X, it follows now that P = idX . , M q i , q j = M q i , q j for all i, j. 1) now show that M ξ, η = M ξ, η for all ξ, η ∈ X 0 . (b) Firstly, suppose T ∈ L(X, Y ) and has (left) polar decomposition T = U |T |. It is then true that T ∈ Hom(M X, M Y ) if and only if U ∈ Hom(M X, M Y ) and |T | ∈ End(M X). We omit the proof of this fact since it is exactly similar to the proof of the fact that a von Neumann algebra contains an operator if and only if it contains the ‘parts’ of the polar decomposition.

9) for any two total orders ≤, ≤ on the vertex set of δ. ) We now wish to generalise our construction of the invariant (for closed 3-manifolds) to 3-manifolds with boundary. Thus, we now suppose that M is a (compact oriented) 3-manifold with ∂M = Σ. Suppose, as above, that δ is a triangulation of Σ and that ≤ is a total order on the vertex set of δ. Choose and fix (i) any triangulation ∆ of M such that ∆ ∩ Σ = δ, ©2001 CRC Press LLC and (ii) any total order ≤M on the vertices of ∆ such that the restriction of ≤M to the vertices of δ is ≤.
