    created stub for WZW model in reply to a question by a colleague (on how to obtain the Hilbert space of states in that model)

    I added the alternative WZNW terminology and redirects. Added the reference to di Francesco’s book with a long chapter on the model.

    I have started adding some words on definition and properties to WZW model.

    I think I have developed a nice general abstract conception for how (higher) WZW theory is the “differentially twisted looping” of infinity-Chern-Simons theory (schreiber). I have been developing this in my cohesive writeup but I want to get back to developing more of it out here in the open.

    The picture that is emerging is that of the following 3 concepts each term comes from the previous term by adding one simple canonical operation

    1. infinity-Chern-Weil theory
    2. infinity-Chern-Simons theory
    3. infinity Wess-Zumino-Witten theory

    I think realizing this helps to see the bigger picture here. Therefore I took the liberty of reflecting that trinity in the floating tocs of these subjects. Hope that’s okay with you all. Some of these entries sit in my personal web, some on the main nnLab. I hope it’s allright the way it is. Otherwise, please let me know.

    in [[WZW model}} it says:

    By Chern-Simons holography? (see there for more details)

    while the holography link there does not work.

    Thanks. I have fixed this by making holography a redirect.

  1. Added details at Wess-Zumino-Witten model in section “Topological term – WZW term”

    I have added to WZW model a survey of the characterization of the WZW D-branes and collected some of the crucial References.

    An idea mentioned in the D-brane section was kindly attributed to me. I slightly modified the attribution for the sake of clarity and accuracy. Hope that's ok (I logged in as an "anon coward" since it feels weird for me to write about myself like that...)

    Since I need to be pointing it from elsewhere, I have added the statement of the formalization of general WZW terms in cohesive homotopy theory, here.
