Topological Quantum Field Theory
I call attention to a recent blog article by Peter Woit at his/Columbia Math Dept.'s website: Not Even Wrong, here, in particular Peter's next-to-last bullet point, which links to a discussion at n-Category Cafe regarding TQFT, or "Topological Quantum Field Theory", here, with Frank Quinn's claims thoughts and the reaction to TQFT.
I'm not sure what to make of it. It seems to me that SuperStrings Theory was always TQFT. I suppose some wish to generalize.
