Seminar on Algebra, Geometry and Physics State integrals (and their building block, the quantum dilogarithm) express the partition function of complex Chern-Simons theory of triangulated 3-manifolds with boundary. I will give an introduction to the subject, focusing on examples, as well as recent results on expressing state integrals in terms of Neumann-Zagier data and in terms of q-series of Nahm type. This is work joint in parts with R. Kashaev and D. Zagier.
