Unitarizability of premodular categories 



Abstract: I will discuss the problem of unitarizability of categories associated with quantum groups at roots of unity. In particular, I will describe the recently completed solution to this problem in the nonsimplylaced cases. This work is motivated by the application of modular categories to quantum systems of interest in topological quantum computation. I will speak on this application in the Math. Phys. seminar next week.
