Title Non semi-simple TQFTs from unrolled quantum sl(2)
Authors Christian Blanchet, Francesco Costantino, Nathan Geer, and Bertrand Patureau-Mirand
Invariants of 3-manifolds from a non semi-simple category of modules over a version of quantum sl(2) were obtained by the last three authors in [4]. They are invariants of 3-manifolds together with a cohomology class which can be interpreted as a line bundle with flat connection. In [1] we have extended those invariants to graded TQFTs on suitable cobordism categories. Here we give an overview of constructions and results, and describe the TQFT vector spaces. Then we provide a new, algebraic, approach to the computation of these vector spaces.
