The existence of a good theory of Thom isomorphisms in some rational category of mixed Tate motives would permit a nice interpolation between ideas of Kontsevich on deformation quantization, and ideas of Connes and Kreimer on a Galois theory of renormalization, mediated by Deligne's ideas on motivic Galois groups. 
Homotopy-theoretically enriched categories of noncommutative motives
AbstractWaldhausen’s K-theory of the sphere spectrum (closely related to the algebraic K-theory of the integers) is naturally augmented as an S0-algebra, and so has a Koszul dual. Classic work of
An integral lift of the Gamma-genus
The Hirzebruch genus of complex-oriented manifolds associated to the Gamma-function lifts to a ring-homomorphism defined by a family of deformations of the Dirac operator, parametrized by the
Minimal models, GT-action and formality of the little disk operad
We give a new proof of formality of the operad of little disks. The proof makes use of an operadic version of a simple formality criterion for commutative differential graded algebras due to
The $\hat{\Gamma}$-genus and a regularization of an $S^1$-equivariant Euler class
We show that a new multiplicative genus, in the sense of Hirzebruch, can be obtained by generalizing a calculation due to Atiyah and Witten. We introduce this as the $\hat{\Gamma}$-genus, compute its


Operads and Motives in Deformation Quantization
The algebraic world of associative algebras has many deep connections with the geometric world of two-dimensional surfaces. Recently, D. Tamarkin discovered that the operad of chains of the little
Cobordism of symplectic manifolds and asymptotic expansions
The cobordism ring of symplectic manifolds defined by V.L. Ginzburg is shown to be isomorphic to the Pontrjagin ring of complex-oriented manifolds with free circle actions. This suggests an

Tate Motives and the Vanishing Conjectures for Algebraic K-Theory
We give axioms for a triangulated ℚ-tensor category T, generated by “Tate objects” ℚ(a), which ensure the existence of a canonical weight filtration on T, and additional axioms which give rise to an
Chern classes and the periods of mirrors
We show how Chern classes of a Calabi Yau hypersurface in a toric Fano manifold can be expressed in terms of the holomorphic at a maximal degeneracy point period of its mirror. We also consider the
The Grothendieck theory of dessins d'enfants: The Grothendieck-Teichmüller group and automorphisms of braid groups
We show that the groupsGT` and ĜT defined by Drinfel’d are respectively the automorphism groups of the tower of the “pro-` completions” B n of the Artin braid groups and of their profinite
Galois symmetries of fundamental groupoids and noncommutative geometry
We define motivic iterated integrals on the affine line, and give a simple proof of the formula for the coproduct in the Hopf algebra of they make. We show that it encodes the group law in the

Deformations of algebras over operads and Deligne's conjecture
In present paper we develop the deformation theory of operads and algebras over operads. Free resolutions (constructed via Boardman-Vogt approach) are used in order to describe formal moduli spaces
