Lectures on Tensor Categories and Modular Functors
by Bojko Bakalov, Alexander Kirillov
Publisher: American Mathematical Society 2000
Number of pages: 221
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.

The approach is to emphasize that Quantum Field Theory is first and foremost a tool for performing practical calculations. I will emphasize the physical problems which have driven the development of the field, and to show how they can be solved.

Presently, all observational evidence points to the fact that Quantum Field Theory provides a good description of all known elementary particles. The scope of these lectures is to provide an introduction to the formalism of Quantum Field Theory.
