This project has as its primal objective to extend the recent developments that topological gauge theories are connected with integrable models. These are based on a topological field theory of Schwartz type that has a four dimensional Chern-Simons type action with complex gauge group G defined on a product manifold that consists of a topological plane times a holomorphic manifold. The idea is that the projections of crossings of Wilson lines in this gauge theory can be interpreted as R-matrices of a integrable model with symmetry group G lying in the topological plane with the coordinate in the holomorphic manifold being the spectral parameter of the R-matrix. Then using this formalism we hope to shed light in the classification of integrable models, in how the fusion rules arise in this framework and more importantly how a duality dictionary can be build relating topological gauge theories in higher dimensions with integrable models in lower dimensions like a holographic principle.
