**Abstract:**
Representations of \(sl_2(\mathbb{C})\) are fundamental in the study of Topological
Quantum field Theory. We'll introduce Lie algebras and their
representations with a focus on the Lie algebra \(sl_2(\mathbb{C})\).
This is the first talk in a working seminar on TQFTs, following the course
