Abstract: In this paper we give a characterization of 2-dimensional topological fieldtheories over a space $X$ as Frobenius bundles with connections over $LX$, thefree loop space of $X$. This is a generalization of the folk theorem statingthat 2-dimensional topological field theories over a point are described byfinite-dimensional commutative Frobenius algebras. In another direction, thisresult extends the description of 1-dimensional topological field theories overa space $X$ as vector bundles with connections over $X$, cf. \cite{DST}.
