Abstract: Topological Quantum Field Theories (TQFTs) play important role both in physics and mathematics, in particular low-dimensional topology. In my talk I will review this notion and consider a family of TQFTs in various dimensions for which the input data is a finite group G and an element of a spin cobordism group of its classifying space BG. I will also describe some explicit examples of such TQFTs.
