Constructive and Topological Reflection Positivities
In the 1970''s, Osterwalder and Schrader introduced an axiom for Constructive Quantum Field Theories called Reflection Positivity. The uses and consequence of Reflection Positivity have been explored by Jaffe, Neeb, Olafsson, and more with numerous interesting results. It was only recently, in 2016, that Reflection Positivity was adapted to Topological Quantum Field Theory through the use of bordisms and categories. This talk will briefly introduce the constructive form of Reflection Positivity before discussing the categorical approach taken by Freed and Hopkins. The talk will be suitable for graduate students in algebra, analysis and topology.
