Abstract

Using the theory of measurable categories developed in [10], we provide a notion of representations of 2-groups better suited to physically and geometrically interesting examples than that using 2-VECT (cf. [8]). Using this theory we sketch a 2-categorical approach to the state-sum model for Lorentzian quantum gravity proposed in [6], and suggest state-integral constructions for 4-manifold invariants.
