Abstract

Moore and Tachikawa conjecture that there exists a functor from the category of 2-bordisms to a certain category whose objects are algebraic groups and morphisms between $G$ and $H$ are given by affine symplectic varieties with an action of $G\times H$.  I will explain a proof of this conjecture due to Ginsburg and Kazhdan, and its relation to Coulomb branches of certain quiver gauge theories which allows to make interesting calculations.
