### WZW Models in a Cohesive ∞-Topos

#### Posted by Urs Schreiber

A few hours back has started the

I have prepared some slides for my talk tomorrow, titled

Maybe you’d enjoy looking at it. I’d be interested in whatever comment you might have.

Where the previous talk focused on the fact that there is physics at all induced in a cohesive $(\infty,1)$-topos, this one looks more specifically at aspects of conformal field theory, namely at higher WZW theory, canonically existing in a cohesive $\infty$-topos.

Since my audience eats WZW models for breakfast, the slides do not explain what these are. They only give a little teaser for why they are of interest. Maybe I find the time to expand the $n$Lab entry WZW model. But at least a bunch of references is currently listed there already.
