Title

Applications of quasi-Hopf symmetries in 3D quantum gravity and condensed matter systems

Abstract

In this last lecture we will present in more detail the application of the mathematical structures introduced in the first two lectures to the problem of quantum gravity in 3 dimensions with a positive cosmological constant. If time permits, we consider certain types of models in condensed matter physics (so-called twisted quantum-double models), whose mathematical structure is similar to our findings in 3D quantum gravity.
