Abstract. In this paper we construct a small E ∞ chain operad S which acts naturally on the normalized cochains S ∗ X of a topological space. We also construct, for each n, a suboperad Sn which is quasiisomorphic to the normalized singular chains of the little ncubes operad. The case n = 2 leads to a substantial simplification of our earlier proof of Deligne’s Hochschild cohomology conjecture. 1. Introduction. This paper has two goals. The first (see Theorem 2.15 and Remark 2.16(a)) is to construct a small E ∞ chain operad S which acts naturally on the normalized cochains S∗X of a topological space X. This is of interest in view of a theorem of Mandell [15, page 44] which states that if O is any E ∞ chain operad over Fp (the algebraic closure of the field with

Let Em denote the space of embeddings of the interval I = [−1, 1] in the cube I m with endpoints and tangent vectors at those endpoints fixed on opposite faces of the cube, equipped with a homotopy through immersions to the unknot – see Definition 5.1. By Proposition 5.17, Em is homotopy equivalent to Emb(I, I m) × ΩImm(I, I m). In [28], McClure and Smith define a cosimplicial object O • associated

Integral transforms and Drinfeld centers in derived algebraic geometry

Compact objects are as necessary to this subject as air to breathe. R.W. Thomason to A. Neeman, [N3] Abstract. We study natural algebraic operations on categories arising in algebraic geometry and its homotopytheoretic generalization, derived algebraic geometry. We work with a broad class of derived stacks which we call stacks with air. The class of stacks with air includes in particular all quasicompact, separated derived schemes and (in characteristic zero) all quotients of quasiprojective or smooth derived schemes by affine algebraic groups, and is closed under derived fiber products. We show that the (enriched) derived categories of quasicoherent sheaves on stacks with air behave well under algebraic and geometric operations. Namely, we identify the derived category of a fiber product with the tensor product of the derived categories of the factors. We also identify functors between derived categories of sheaves with integral transforms (providing a generalization of a theorem of Toën [To1] for ordinary schemes over a ring). As a first application, for a stack Y with air, we calculate the Drinfeld center (or synonymously,

The solution of Deligne’s conjecture on Hochschild cochains and the formality of the operad of little disks provide us with a natural homotopy Gerstenhaber algebra structure on the Hochschild cochains of an associative algebra. In this paper we construct a natural chain of quasiisomorphisms of homotopy Gerstenhaber algebras between the Hochschild cochain complex C • (A) of a regular commutative algebra A over a field K of characteristic zero and the Gerstenhaber algebra of multiderivations of A. Unlike the original approach of the second author based on the computation of obstructions our method allows us to avoid the bulky GelfandFuchs trick and prove the formality of the homotopy Gerstenhaber algebra structure on the sheaf of polydifferential operators on a smooth algebraic variety, a complex manifold, and a smooth real manifold.

Abstract. Let A be a finite dimensional, unital, associative algebra with nondegenerate invariant inner product. In this note, we give an explicit description of an action of chains of cyclic Sullivan chord diagrams on the reduced Hochschild cochain complex of A. This paper is prepared as notes for a talk at the AMS meeting in Lawrenceville in April 2004. It concerns structures on the reduced Hochschild cochain complex, mirroring those of String Topology. String Topology may be regarded as the study of the algebraic topology of the free loop space of a manifold. Chas and Sullivan, [1], [2], showed that the cohomology of the free loop space of a manifold has the structure of a BV algebra. Building on Sullivan’s later work [13], Cohen and Godin [3] showed that string topology operations give rise to a two dimensional positive boundary TQFT. This was achieved by looking at certain operations coming from so called Sullivan chord diagrams. The Hochschild cochain complex of the cochains of a (simply connected) manifold gives a model for the chains on the free loop space of that manifold. One expects
