Seminar on 2D TQFTs

The philosophy is: Topology is interesting, but hard. So we want to translate topology into (way easier) algebra. Preferable into linear algebra. This is the main idea behind functors, which should be thought of as providing a way to turn questions in topology into questions in (linear) algebra. The point of this seminar is to understand how this works in the case of a 2D TQFT, where a beautiful classification in terms of algebra is possible.
