About this book

Corina Keller studies non-perturbative facets of abelian Chern-Simons theories. This is a refinement of the entirely perturbative approach to classical Chern-Simons theory via homotopy factorization algebras of observables that arise from the associated formal moduli problem describing deformations of flat principal bundles with connections over the spacetime manifold. The author shows that for theories with abelian group structure, this factorization algebra of classical observables comes naturally equipped with an action of the gauge group, which allows to encode non-perturbative effects in the classical observables.

Reviews

“This book is very valuable as a guide to the mathematics needed for and going into Chern-Simons theory. … I think this is a fabulous book, and Keller should be applauded for having written a magnificent master’s thesis.” (Michael Berg, MAA Reviews, August 04, 2019)
