The Boardman-Vogt tensor product of operadic bimodules

Wednesday 3rd April 2013 - 15:00 to 16:00
INI Seminar Room 1
(Joint work with Bill Dwyer.) The Boardman-Vogt tensor product of operads endows the category of operads with a symmetric monoidal structure that codifies interchanging algebraic structures. In this talk I will explain how to lift the Boardman-Vogt tensor product to the category of composition bimodules over operads. I will also sketch two geometric applications of the lifted B-V tensor product, to building models for spaces of long links and for configuration spaces in product manifolds.
