in 1990 and that one of the equivalent definitions of a TQFT is in

category terms: a TQFT is a functor from the category of n-dimensional cobordisms to the category of Hilbert spaces, satisfying certain conditions.

Is anyone familiar with the category theory definition? If not too convoluted maybe you could run through it?
