### Topological Strings from 2-Transport

#### Posted by urs

I would be grateful for comments on the following notes.

2D TFT from 2-Transport

**Abstract:**

It is shown that the parallel surface transport given by certain locally trivialized 2-functors from 2-paths to $\mathrm{Vect}$ reproduces the class of 2-dimensional topological field theories introduced by Fukuma, Hosono and Kawai. In general, every full 2-trivialization of a transport 2-functor gives rise to a Frobenius algebra bundle.
