Title: Z/2Z permutation gauging of modular tensor categories 

Abstract: Modular tensor categories are a special type of braided fusion category
arising in many areas of mathematics and physics.  Modular tensor categories can be
complicated beasts.  While there are many constructions that produce a modular tensor
category from some other fusion category by abstract nonsense, often it is very
difficult to say anything about the result.  We will describe one such construction,
Z/2Z permutation gauging, and give a formula for the fusion rules of the result.


Based on joint work with Cain Edie-Michell and Julia Plavnik.
