Massless excitations at the edge of topological insulators possess both fermionic and bosonic descriptions. In two dimensions, the map between bosons and fermions is well understood within the edge conformal field theory.

In three dimensions, we use effective actions and partition functions to establish some basic properties of the corresponding bosonization map.
