A note on the $(\infty,n)$–category of cobordisms

Damien Calaque and Claudia Scheimbauer

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 19 (2019) 533–655
Abstract

In this extended note we give a precise definition of fully extended topological field theories à la Lurie. Using complete n–fold Segal spaces as a model, we construct an (,n)–category of n–dimensional bordisms, possibly with tangential structure. We endow it with a symmetric monoidal structure and show that we can recover the usual category of bordisms.

Keywords
