A-infinity Algebras Derived from Associative Algebras with a Non-Derivation Differential

  title={A-infinity Algebras Derived from Associative Algebras with a Non-Derivation Differential},
  author={K. Borjeson},
Given an associative graded algebra equipped with a degree +1 differential ∆ we define an A∞-structure that measures the failure of ∆ to be a derivation. This can be seen as a non-commutative analog of generalized BV-algebras. In that spirit we introduce a notion of associative order for the operator ∆ and prove that it satisfies properties similar to the commutative case. In particular when it has associative order 2 the new product is a strictly associative product of degree +1 and there is a… Expand


On some generalizations of Batalin-Vilkovisky algebras
Abstract We define the concept of higher-order differential operators on a general noncommutative, nonassociative superalgebra A , and show that a vertex operator superalgebra (VOSA) has plenty ofExpand
Non-Commutative Batalin-Vilkovisky Algebras, Homotopy Lie Algebras and the Courant Bracket
We consider two different constructions of higher brackets. First, based on a Grassmann-odd, nilpotent Δ operator, we define a non-commutative generalization of the higher Koszul brackets, which areExpand
Higher derived brackets and homotopy algebras
We give a construction of homotopy algebras based on “higher derived brackets”. More precisely, the data include a Lie superalgebra with a projector on an Abelian subalgebra satisfying a certainExpand
Examples of Algebraic Operads
In Chap. 9, we studied in detail the operad Ass encoding the associative algebras. It is a paradigm for nonsymmetric operads, symmetric operads, cyclic operads. In this chapter we present severalExpand
The Batalin-Vilkovisky Algebra on Hochschild Cohomology Induced by Infinity Inner Products
— We define a BV-structure on the Hochschild cohomology of a unital, associative algebra A with a symmetric, invariant and non-degenerate inner product. The induced Gerstenhaber algebra is the oneExpand
Some time ago B. Feigin, V. Retakh and I had tried to understand a remark of J. Stasheff [S1] on open string theory and higher associative algebras [S2]. Then I found a strange construction ofExpand
Variations on Cyclic Homology
There are several ways of modifying cyclic homology: by altering the cyclic bicomplex, by putting up other groups than the cyclic groups or by enlarging the category of algebras.
