INSTITUTE  
TITLE 3d Modularity
ABSTRACT

In this talk, I will discuss modular properties of the homological blocks (introduced e.g., in 1701.06567), which are partition functions of certain 3d theories labeled by three manifolds and categorify the Witten-Reshetikhin-Turaev invariants. In particular, for a class of Seifert manifolds, the homological blocks turn out to be quantum modular forms, as defined recently by mathematicians. The talk is mainly based on 1809.10148, and some other useful references are 1605.07615 and 1701.06567.
