Deformation Theory Seminar: Matrix factorizations in deformation theory

Seminar | February 27 | 2:40-4 p.m. | Mathematical Sciences Research Institute, Auditorium | Note change in time

I will review the appearance of curvings for objects in the deformation theory of categories and discuss conditions for their removal. I will review the role of nilpotence in reduction to uncurved deformations.
