DESCRIPTION:Title: Conjectural relations on sl2 non-semisimple invariants and BPS series
\nby Francesco Costantino (Toulouse University) as part of BIRS worksh
op: Quantum Field Theories and Quantum Topology Beyond Semisimplicity\n\n\
nAbstract\nIn this talk I will report on a recent collaboration joint with
Sergei Gukov and Pavel Putrov exploring some new relations between the no
n-semisimple invariants associated to the unrolled version of quantum $sl_
2$ at roots of unity and the BPS series invariants.\nI will first consider
the case of knots in the sphere and describe the conjectures on ADO polyn
omials and BPS series. Then I will pass to the case of invariants of close
d three manifolds and describe a conjectural relation we detailed in our p
aper and which we proved to hold in some infinite family of cases.\nIn the
last part of the talk I will speculate on an extension of these conjectur
es on the level of the associated TQFTs and describe some ideas to implem
ent this.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Grothendieck-Verdier duality in categories of VOA modules with exampl
es\nby Simon Wood (Cardiff University) as part of BIRS workshop: Quant
um Field Theories and Quantum Topology Beyond Semisimplicity\n\n\nAbstract
\nArguably one of the most difficult steps in Huang's proof of\nthe Verlin
de conjecture was proving rigidity. One indicator of why this\nis a specia
l (hard to verify) property is that already within the class\nof c_2-cofin
ite yet non-semisimple theories there are known counter\nexamples to rigid
ity. In this talk I will present a weaker yet more\ntractable form of dual
ity\, which was recently shown to apply to\ncategories of VOA modules sati
sfying mild assumptions. For concreteness\,\nI will then illustrate this s
tructure using Heisenberg and lattice VOAs\n(aka free bosons).\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: On indecomposable and logarithmic modules for affine vertex algebras<
/a>\nby Drazen Adamovic (University of Zagreb\, Faculty of Science\,) as p
art of BIRS workshop: Quantum Field Theories and Quantum Topology Beyond S
emisimplicity\n\n\nAbstract\nIn this talk we will be focused on non-semisi
mple categories of modules for affine vertex (super)algebras. If $g$ is
a\nLie algebra\, then the affine vertex algebra $L_k(g)$ admits non-semisi
mple modules only beyond the category $KL_k$. But if $g$ is a\nLie superal
gebra\, even the category $KL_k$ can contain indecomposable modules.\n\nWe
will first review certain general methods of constructing logarithmic (pr
ojective) modules. Then we will show how these methods\ncan be applied on
affine vertex algebras by using recent free field realizations\, which are
motivated by finding inverses of the\nQuantum Hamiltonian Reductions. We
will present new realizations of logarithmic modules of nilpotent rank thr
ee for affine vertex\nalgebra $L_k(sl_3)$ at (almost) arbitrary non-integr
al level $k$. (This part of the talk is a joint work with T. Creutzig and
N.\nGenra).\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Bulk from boundary in finite conformal field theory\nby Jürgen
Fuchs (Karlstad University) as part of BIRS workshop: Quantum Field Theori
es and Quantum Topology Beyond Semisimplicity\n\n\nAbstract\nWe show that
pivotal module categories provide a source of symmetric\n Frobenius alge
bras. These are natural candidates for the bulk and\n boundary algebras
in full conformal field theories for which the\n chiral data are encoded
in a modular finite tensor category $\\mathcal C$. The\n bulk algebra\,
as well as more general defect fields\, can be expressed\n as certain c
oends. The structural morphisms of these coends give\n in particular a b
ulk-boundary map\, whereby the whole field content\n of the CFT can be r
econstructed from the boundary fields. Moreover\,\n there are natural ca
ndidates for operator products of bulk (as well as\n defect) fields\, wh
ich pass various consistency conditions\, including\n all genus-zero con
straints in Lewellen's list.\n In the special case of rational conformal
field theories\, for which $\\mathcal C$\n is semisimple\, the conjectu
red expressions reproduce known results.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Coloured Jones and coloured Alexander polynomials unified by a grade
d Lagrangian intersection\nby Cristina Palmer-Anghel (Université de G
enève) as part of BIRS workshop: Quantum Field Theories and Quantum Topol
ogy Beyond Semisimplicity\n\n\nAbstract\nThe theory of quantum invariants
started with the Jones polynomial and continued with the Reshetikhin-Turae
v algebraic construction of invariants. In this\ncontext\, the quantum gro
up $U_q(sl(2))$ leads to the sequence of coloured Jones polynomials\, and
the same quantum group at roots of unity gives the coloured Alexander poly
nomials.\n\nWe construct a unified topological model for these two sequenc
es of quantum invariants. \nMore specifically\, we define certain homology
classes given by Lagrangian\nsubmanifolds in configuration spaces. Then\,
we prove that the $N^{th}$ coloured Jones\nand $N^{th}$ coloured Alexande
r invariants come as different specialisations of a {\\em state\nsum (defi
ned over 3 variables) of Lagrangian intersections in configuration spaces.
}\nAs a particular case\, we see both Jones and Alexander polynomials from
the same\nintersection pairing in a configuration space.\n\nSecondly\, we
present a {\\em globalised model without state sums} from recent work. We
\nshow that one can read o both coloured Jones and coloured Alexander p
olynomials of colour $N$ \nfrom a {\\em graded intersection between two ex
plicit Lagrangians in a\nsymmetric power} of the punctured disk.\n

famous Reshetikhin-Turaev-Witten construction of 3d Topological QFTs\nhas
as an input data a modular tensor category that is assumed to be\nsemi-si
mple. In middle of 90's Lyubashenko has proposed a reasonable\nnon-semisim
ple version of modular tensor categories and it was later\nshown that they
produce mapping class group representations with new\nfeatures not presen
t in the RTW construction\, e.g. infinite order of\nDehn twists action. Ma
ny important examples of such categories come from\ntwo-dimensional Logari
thmic Conformal Field Theories and as\nrepresentation categories of small
quantum groups. However\, a proper\nTQFT construction for Lyubashenko's th
eory was missing. In this talk\, I\nwill show that our non-semisimple TQFT
(from Ingo’s talk) provides\nmapping class group representations that (
projectively) agree with those\ndefined by Lyubashenko. This is a joint wo
rk with M. De Renzi\, N. Geer\,\nB. Patureau-Mirand\, and I. Runkel.\nI wi
ll further present very recent results on actions of another\nfundamental
group\, the group of ribbon auto-equivalences of the input\nmodular catego
ry. In the non-semisimple case\, these groups are typically\nnon-discrete\
, e.g. Lie groups. In an ongoing project with M. De Renzi\nand I. Runkel\,
we have shown that their action on TQFT spaces commutes\nwith the action
of the mapping class groups.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Obtaining non-semisimple modular tensor categories from vertex opera
tor algebras\nby Robert McRae (Tsinghua University) as part of BIRS wo
rkshop: Quantum Field Theories and Quantum Topology Beyond Semisimplicity\
n\n\nAbstract\nOne of the most important results in vertex operator algebr
as is Huang's theorem that if the module category of a vertex operator alg
ebra satisfying $C_2$-cofiniteness (plus a few relatively minor conditions
) is semisimple\, then it is a semisimple modular tensor category. Huang a
lso showed that the module category of any $\\mathbb{N}$-graded $C_2$-cofi
nite vertex operator algebra $V$ is at least a braided tensor category. In
this talk\, I will discuss my recent result that if this tensor category
of $V$-modules is rigid\, with duals given by contragredient modules\, the
n its braiding is non-degenerate\, that is\, $V$-modules form a not-necess
arily-semisimple modular tensor category. I will also discuss the prospect
s of proving rigidity for the $V$-module category in general\, as well as
the possibility that rigidity is preserved under vertex operator algebra c
onstructions that are known to preserve $C_2$-cofiniteness\, such as tenso
r products\, extensions\, and finite solvable orbifolds. This leads potent
ially to many non-semisimple modular tensor categories obtained via standa
rd constructions applied to the triplet vertex operator algebras $\\mathca
l{W}(p)$\, $p\\in\\mathbb{Z}_{\\geq 2}$.\n
