In this talk I will review work on `decomposition,’ a property of 2d theories with 1-form symmetries and, more generally, d-dim’l theories with (d-1)-form symmetries. Decomposition is the observation that such quantum field theories, and various generalizations, are equivalent to (‘decompose into’) disjoint unions of other QFTs. This observation was first made in 2006, and in this talk we shall give an overview of work done on the subject since, concluding with some recent developments.

This talk is part of the Quantum Fields and Strings Seminars series.
