Title: Non-formality of Galois cohomology modulo all primes
Speaker: Federico Scavia
Speaker Info: UCLA
Brief Description:
Special Note:

Let p be a prime number. For every field F, we construct a field L containing F such that the Strong Massey Vanishing Conjecture fails for L and the DGA of mod-p continuous cochains of the absolute Galois group of L is not formal. This answers a question of Positselski. Joint work with Alexander Merkurjev.
