Abstract

We describe a method to find the anomaly of the time-reversal symmetry of 2+1d topological quantum field theories, by computing the fractional anomalous momentum on the crosscap background. This allows us, e.g., to identify the parameter v mod 16 of the bulk 3+1d topological superconductor with T2 = (-1)F on whose boundary a given 2+1d time-reversal-invariant topological phase can appear.
