Abstract: 

Igor Frenkel and Ivan Ip conjectured that positive representations of quantum groups are closed under tensor products. This conjecture happens to be closely related to the so-called modular functor conjecture by Fock and Goncharov. I will speak about joint works with Gus Schrader (some of which are works in progress) where we prove the above conjectures.
