In the Batalin-Vilkovisky field-antifield formalism a classical mechanical system is described by a solution of the classical master equation. The quantization of this general gauge theory in the Lagrangian approach can be accomplished in closed form [2]. The AKSZ-formalism is a geometrical construction of such a solution as a QP-manifold [1]. This can be extended and applied to topological quantum field theories.
