Given a differential Batalin–Vilkovisky algebra (V, Q, Δ.) the associated odd differential graded Lie algebra (V, Q, + Δ, [,].) is always smooth formal. The quantum differential graded Lie algebra Lℏ:=(V[[ℏ]],Q+ℏΔ,[,]) is not always smooth formal, but when it is — for example, when a Q‐Δ version of the ∂‐∂ Lemma holds — there is a weak Frobenius manifold structure on the homology of L that is important in applications and relevant to quantum correlation functions. In this paper, we prove that L… 
The Bogomolov-Tian-Todorov theorem of cyclic A-algebras
Let A be a finite-dimensional smooth unital cyclic A∞-algebra. Assume furthermore that A satisfies the Hodge-to-de-Rham degeneration property. In this short note, we prove the non-commutative
Symplectic field theory and quantum backgrounds
We derive an L∞ structure associated to a polarized quantum background and characterize the obstructions to finding a versal solution to the quantum master equation (QME). We illustrate how
Smoothing, scattering, and a conjecture of Fukaya
. In 2002, Fukaya [16] proposed a remarkable explanation of mirror symmetry detailing the SYZ conjecture [41] by introducing two correspondences: one between the theory of pseudo-holomorphic curves

Homotopy BV algebras in Poisson geometry
We define and study the degeneration property for $ \mathrm {BV}_\infty $ algebras and show that it implies that the underlying $ L_{\infty }$ algebras are homotopy abelian. The proof is based on a
The minimal model for the Batalin–Vilkovisky operad
The purpose of this paper is to explain and to generalize, in a homotopical way, the result of Barannikov–Kontsevich and Manin, which states that the underlying homology groups of some

This is the first in a series of papers on an attempt to understand quantum field theory mathematically. In this paper we shall introduce and study BV QFT algebra and BV QFT as the proto-algebraic
Deformations and Obstructions of Pairs (X, D)
We study deformations of pairs (X,D), with X smooth projective variety and D a smooth or a normal crossing divisor, defined over an algebraically closed field of characteristic 0. Using the
Geometry of the Maurer-Cartan equation near degenerate Calabi-Yau varieties
Given a degenerate Calabi-Yau variety X equipped with local deformation data, we construct an almost differential graded Batalin-Vilkovisky (almost dgBV) algebra PV(X), giving a singular version of
