The classical master equation

Presented by: 
G Felder ETH Zürich
Date: 
Thursday 14th February 2013 - 14:00 to 16:00
Venue: 
INI Seminar Room 1
Abstract: 
We formalize the construction of Batalin and Vilkovisky of a solution of the master equation associated with a polynomial in n variables (or a regular function on a nonsingular affine variety). We show existence and uniqueness up to "stable equivalence" and discuss the associated BRST cohomology (joint work with David Kazhdan).
