Modular fusion categories are mathematical structures appearing in mathematical physics (high energy and now condensed matter physics) and low dimensional topology (3d topological field theories).
The course will give an (elementary and example based) introduction to them and their very rough structure theory, governed by
the so-called Witt group of modular categories.
