Two models for infinity-operads

Wednesday 3rd April 2013 - 16:30 to 17:30
INI Seminar Room 1
Following the foundational work of Joyal and Lurie, the theory of infinity-categories is now widely being used. There are two ways of extending the theory to "infinity-operads", one of them [CM] based on the theory of dendroidal sets, the other [HA] on the theory of cocartesian fibrations between infinity-categories, and ever since the appearance of the first versions of [HA] it was conjectured that the two theories are equivalent. In this lecture I will present an outline of a proof of this conjecture [HHM].
