Tudor Dimofte awarded EPSRC Fellowship

Tudor Dimofte has been awarded an EPSRC Open Fellowship entitled "3d N=4 TQFT's". The fellowship, worth over £1million, lies at the interface of pure mathematics (algebra, geometry and topology) and theoretical physics (quantum field theory). A new class of three-dimensional topological quantum field theories, the eponymous 3d N=4 TQFT's, will be constructed and a combination of techniques from physics, algebra and geometry will be used to understand and define their structure.
