Reading/Discussion on the Ponzano-Regge model of 3d quantum gravity

QMAP Seminar

Speaker:
Location: 2112 MSB
Start time: Thu, Oct 2 2008, 3:10PM

We will read and discuss the paper "Ponzano-Regge Model Revisited II: Equivalence with Chern-Simons" [gr-qc/0410141], by Freidel and Louapre.

This paper is fairly self contained, but we may also look at its predecessor "PRMR I" [hep-th/0401076].
