Quantum Deformation Theory Seminar

Speaker: Alexander Voronov (U. Minnesota)
Title: Quantum Deformation Theory
Date (JST): Wed, Aug 18, 2010, 15:30 - 17:00
Place: Balcony A
Abstract: I will discuss Costello's work on Topological Conformal Field Theory (TCFT) which constructs a derived extension of an open TCFT to an open-closed TCFT and shows that it can be computed via Hochschild homology.
