Chern–Simons theory on a general Seifert $3$-manifold
Pages: 279 – 304
The path integral for the partition function of Chern–Simons gauge theory with a compact gauge group is evaluated on a general Seifert $3$-manifold. This extends previous results and relies on abelianisation, a background field method and local application of the Kawasaki Index theorem.
