Topology Seminar

Title: Higher multiplicative structure in homotopy theory
Speaker: Robert Hank
Speaker Info: University of Minnesota
Brief Description:
Special Note:

Given a multiplicative structure and some notion of homotopy, Toda brackets and Massey products are able to detect higher multiplicative structure. Being able to detect higher structure can be useful in spectral sequence computations or obstruction theory arguments. The common examples where this structure can be detected are chain complexes and spaces. In this talk we will revisit these known definitions, recast in a different light, and use that to understand more about the higher structure in more general settings such as A-infinity categories and infinity categories.
