One-dimensional topological theories with defects and linear generating functions

Mee Seong Im and Paul Zimmer

Vol. 15 (2022), No. 2, 319–331
Abstract

We study the Gram determinant and construct bases of hom spaces for the one-dimensional topological theory of decorated unoriented one-dimensional cobordisms, as recently defined by Khovanov, when the pair of generating functions is linear.

Keywords
topological quantum field theory, cobordism, universal construction, string diagrams, defects, evaluations, linear generating functions
