Factorization structures and the study of G-bundles

6 March 2013
Emily Cliff -- Queen's Lecture C
<p>We'll provide some motivation for the appearance of factorization algebras in physics, before discussing the definition of a factorization monoid. We'll then review the definition of a principal G-bundle and show how a factorization monoid can help us understand the moduli stack Bun_G of principal G-bundles.</p>
