# Strongly homotopy Lie algebras

@article{Lada1994StronglyHL, title={Strongly homotopy Lie algebras}, author={Tom Lada and Martin Markl}, journal={Communications in Algebra}, year={1994}, volume={23}, pages={2147-2161} }

The present paper can be thought of as a continuation of the paper "Introduction to sh Lie algebras for physicists" by T. Lada and J. Stasheff (International Journal of Theoretical Physics Vol. 32, No. 7 (1993), 1087--1103, appeared also as preprint hep-th/9209099) which provided an exposition of the basic ingredients of the theory of strongly homotopy Lie algebras sufficient for the underpinnings of the physically relevant examples. We demonstrate the `strong homotopy' analog of the usual…

This paper is devoted to the study of the relation between ‘formal exponential maps,’ the Atiyah class, and Kapranov L∞[1] algebras associated with dg manifolds in the C ∞ context. We prove that, for…

### An explicit model for the homotopy theory of finite-type Lie n–algebras

Lie $n$-algebras are the $L_\infty$ analogs of chain Lie algebras from rational homotopy theory. Henriques showed that finite type Lie $n$-algebras can be integrated to produce certain simplicial…

### Deformation theory and rational homotopy type

- Mathematics

We regard the classification of rational homotopy types as a problem in algebraic deformation theory: any space with given cohomology is a perturbation, or deformation, of the "formal" space with…
