Homotopy invariance in string topology

INI Seminar Room 1
In joint work with Nancy Hingston, we show that the Goresky-Hingston coproduct, just like the Chas-Sullivan product, is homotopy invariant. Unlike the Chas-Sullivan product, this coproduct is a "compactified operation", coming from a certain compactification of the moduli space of Riemann surfaces. I'll give an idea of the ingredients used in the proof.
