Description

I will explain how the 2-3 triangulation move, in the context of hyperbolic polyhedra, gives rise to an essentially unique sequence of (2+1)-dimensional QFT, including the Chern-Simons functional of sl(2,C)-connections (as the classical case), quantum Teichmüller theory, and the quantum hyperbolic invariants of 3-manifolds.
