Deformation Theory Seminar: Operads and Koszul duality

Seminar | October 22 | 5:10-6:30 p.m. | 891 Evans Hall

 Yixuan Li, UC Berkeley

 Department of Mathematics

In this talk we'll introduce operads and the interaction with sheaf theory. Parallel to the notion of Koszul algebras, we'll define Koszul operads and duality between them. In particular, connections with sheaves and Verdier duality will be explained in an example arising from the moduli spaces of genus zero stable curves with marked points.
