Quantum Deformation Theory Seminar

Speaker: Alexander Voronov (U. Minnesota)
Title: Quantum Deformation Theory
Date (JST): Tue, Jul 27, 2010, 15:30 - 17:00
Place: Balcony A
Abstract: Last Tuesday, I gave a few comments on formal exponentials exp (-S/h) and then discussed the example of the graded symmetric algebra on a dg Lie algebra and what the Quantum Master Equation describes in that case.
I also formulated Barannikov's result on solutions to QME and modular operads, see Barannikov, S. "Modular Operads and Batalin-Vilkovisky Geometry," International Mathematics Research Notices, Vol. 2007. I plan to go over this result in detail during the coming meeting.
