Almost integral TQFTs from simple Lie algebras

Qi Chen, Thang Le

Abstract. Almost integral TQFTs were introduced by Gilmer [Duke Math. J. 125 (2004) 389--413]. The aim of this paper is to modify the TQFT of the category of extended 3-cobordisms given by Turaev (in his book: Quantum invariants of knots and 3-manifolds) to obtain an almost integral TQFT.

Keywords. TQFT, almost integral TQFT, simple Lie algebra
