An elementary model for infinity (cyclic) operads

Marcy Robertson – 19 May 2021

In this talk I'll describe a new, "hands-on" model for infinity (cyclic) operads based on the classical W-construction. I'll exhibit how this elementary model allows for the easy construction of examples of infinity (cyclic) operads. This talk will include joint work with L. Basualdo Bonatto, S. Chettih, A. Linton, S. Raynor, and N. Wahl.
