Abstract: 
We continue the discussion of the bulk factorization in AdS-CFT with more toy model examples. In this case I will talk about Chern-Simons theory on a manifold with (disconnected) boundaries. I review the canonical quantization of such theory and the relation with 2d CFT and the WZW model. Finally I present the subtleties that arise in the case of two boundaries and the way in which this eludes the factorization from the CFT perspective. The talk is largely based on https://arxiv.org/pdf/1511.05627.pdf https://arxiv.org/pdf/1510.07911.pdf
