Number of pages: 221

Description:
This book gives an exposition of the relations among the following three topics: monoidal tensor categories (such as a category of representations of a quantum group), 3-dimensional topological quantum field theory, and 2-dimensional modular functors (which naturally arise in 2-dimensional conformal field theory). It would be suitable as a course text at the advanced-graduate level.

All particles in the standard model correspond to some field in a quantum field theory. Our task is to understand how this works, how to describe interactions of these particles using quantum field theory, and how to compute various processes.

This paper is a survey of AQFT, with an orientation towards foundational topics. In addition to covering the basics of the theory, we discuss issues related to nonlocality, the particle concept, the field concept, and inequivalent representations.
