Abstract
By using the Weil-Gel'fand-Zak transform of Faddeev's quantum dilogarithm, Andersen and Kasheav have proposed a new state-integral model for the Andersen--Kashaev TQFT, where the circle valued state variables live on the edges of oriented levelled shaped triangulations. I will look at a couple of examples which give an idea of how the theories are coupled.
