Henriques: Extended Conformal Field Theories from Frobenius Algebras (Part 4)
Andre Henriques, University of Utrecht, Netherlands The idea of extending quantum field theories to manifolds of lower dimension was first proposed by Dan Freed in the nineties. In the case of conformal eld theory (CFT), we are talking of an extension of the Atiyah-Segal axioms where one replaces the bordism category of Riemann surfaces by a suitable bordism 2-category, whose objects are points, whose morphism are 1-manifolds, and whose 2-morphisms are pieces of Riemann surface.

"I Was More of a Citizen": A Puerto Rican Garment Worker Describes Discrimination in the 1920s
We generally think of Puerto Rican migration to the U.S. mainland as largely a post-World War II phenomenon, since more than 800,000 Puerto Ricans came to the United States between 1940 and 1969. But immigration actually started much earlier in the century; between 1915 and 1930 more than 50,000 Puerto Rican migrants headed for the United States--especially New York City. The new immigrants faced a mixed reception, particularly from immigrants from other countries. In this interview for the radi

The purpose of this activity is to observe the type and cover of clouds including contrails. Students observe which of ten types of clouds and how many of three types of contrails are visible and how much of the sky is covered by clouds (other than contrails) and how much is covered by contrails. Intended outcomes are that students learn how to make estimates from observations and how to categorize specific clouds following general descriptions for the categories. They will learn the meteorologi
