We will introduce the basics of the relation between Chern Simons quantum field theory to knot theory and two-dimensional conformal field theory following the seminal work of Edward Witten on the Jones Polynomial and all related references.
Quantum Field Theory, knowledge on two-dimensional conformal field theory useful
