*Topological Quantum Field Theory approach for Bosonic Symmetry-Protected-Topological Phases with Abelian Symmetry in Three Dimensions *

Symmetry protected topological(SPT) phase is a generalization of topological insulator(TI). Different from the intrinsic topological phase, e.g., the fractional quantum hall(FQH) phase, SPT phase is only distinguishable from a trivial disordered phase when certain symmetry is preserved. Indeed, SPT phase has a long history in 1D, and it has been shown that the well known Haldane phase of S=1 Heisenberg chain belongs to this class. However, in higher dimensions, most of the previous studies focus on free electron systems. Until very recently, it was realized that SPT phase also exists in interacting boson/spin systems in higher dimensions. In this talk, I will discuss the general mechanism for bosonic SPT phases and propose a corresponding topological quantum field theory(TQFT)descriptions. I will focus on examples in three (spacial) dimensions, including bosonic topological insulators(BTI).

*Bulk/boundary correspondence in topological phases*

Many of interesting physical (in particular topological) properties of topological phases and symmetry protected topological phases can be "inferred" from their boundary (end, edge, surface, ..) field theories. In particular, the presence of quantum anomalies in boundary field theories (or lack thereof) gives a way to diagnose bulk topological properties. I will discuss such bulk/boundary correspondence in various examples in 2d and 3d.

*Colloquium: TQFTs in Nature and Topological Quantum Computation*

Topological quantum computation is based on the possibility of the realization of some TQFTs in Nature as topological phases of quantum matter. Theoretically, we would like to classify topological phases of matter, and experimentally, find non-abelian objects in Nature. We will discussion some progress for a general audience.

*(3+1)-TQFTs from G-crossed braided fusion categories and their lattice realization*

Unitary fusion categories are the algebraic input for the Turaev-Viro (TV) type TQFTs in (2+1)-dimensions and their Hamiltonian realization for the Levin-Wen model. We are interested in a generalization to unitary 2-fusion category for (3+1)-dimensions. Mackaay's spherical 2-categories are not general enough to include interesting examples such as the G-crossed braided fusion categories and general homotopy 2-types. We will discussion new (3+1)-TQFTs with G-crossed braided fusion categories as input, and their lattice realization based on the thesis work of Shawn X. Cui.
