Embeddings, operads, graph-complexes

Presented by: 
Victor Turchin Kansas State University
Tuesday 4th December 2018 - 14:30 to 15:30
INI Seminar Room 1
I will talk about the connection between the following concepts: manifold calculus, little discs operads, embedding spaces, problem of delooping, relative rational formality of the little discs, and graph-complexes. I will review main results on this connection by Boavida de Brito and Weiss, my coauthors and myself. At the end I will briefly go over the current joint work in progress of Fresse, Willwacher, and myself on the rational homotopy type of embedding spaces.

Co-authors: Gregory Arone (Stockholm University), Julien Ducoulombier (ETH, Zurich), Benoit Fresse (University of Lille), Pascal Lambrechts (University of Louvain), Paul Arnaud Songhafouo Tsopméné (University of Regina), Thomas Willwacher (ETH, Zurich).
