**Lectures on Tensor Categories and Modular Functors**

by Bojko Bakalov, Alexander Kirillov

**Publisher**: American Mathematical Society 2000**ISBN/ASIN**: 0821826867**ISBN-13**: 9780821826867**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.
