Deformation Theory Seminar: Curved deformations and categories of singularities

Seminar | March 6 | 2:40-4 p.m. | 736 Evans Hall

 Department of Mathematics

We will construct deformations of categories for Hochschild Maurer-Cartan cochains with non-trivial curving components. These will be related to fixed point categories for Lie algebra actions and, in the special case of matrix factorizations, to the category of singularities
