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 Batalin–Vilkovisky algebras carry a Frobenius manifold structure. To this extent, we first make the minimal model for the operad encoding BV-algebras explicit. Then, we prove a homotopy transfer theorem for the associated notion of homotopy BV-algebra. The final result provides an extension of the action of the… Expand

Hypercommutative Operad as a Homotopy Quotient of BV
We give an explicit formula for a quasi-isomorphism between the operads Hycomm (the homology of the moduli space of stable genus 0 curves) and BV/Δ (the homotopy quotient of Batalin-Vilkovisky operadExpand
Koszul duality theory for operads over Hopf algebras
The transfer of the generating operations of an algebra to a homotopy equivalent chain complex produces higher operations. The first goal of this paper is to describe precisely the higher structureExpand
We show Koszulness of the prop governing involutive Lie bialgebras and also of the props governing non-unital and unital-counital Frobenius algebras, solving a long-standing problem. This gives usExpand
The odd origin of Gerstenhaber brackets, Batalin-Vilkovisky operators, and master equations
Using five basic principles, we treat Gerstenhaber/Lie brackets, Batalin-Vilkovisky (BV) operators, and master equations appearing in mathematical and physical contexts in a unified way. TheExpand
Toric varieties of Loday's associahedra and noncommutative cohomological field theories.
We introduce and study several new topological operads that should be regarded as nonsymmetric analogues of the operads of little 2-disks, framed little 2-disks, and Deligne-Mumford compactificationsExpand
Resolutions of operads arising from Koszul (bi)algebras
We introduce a construction that produces from each bialgebra H an operad AssH controlling associative algebras in the monoidal category of H-modules or, briefly, H-algebras. When the underlyingExpand
Givental group action on topological field theories and homotopy Batalin-Vilkovisky algebras
Abstract In this paper, we initiate the study of the Givental group action on Cohomological Field Theories in terms of homotopical algebra. More precisely, we show that the stabilisers of TopologicalExpand
Deformation theory of Cohomological Field Theories
We develop the deformation theory of cohomological field theories (CohFTs), which is done as a special case of a general deformation theory of morphisms of modular operads. This leads us to introduceExpand

This paper studies the formal deformations and homotopy of Rota-Baxter algebras of any given weight. We define an L∞-algebra that controls simultaneous the deformations of the associative product andExpand
On algebraic structures of the Hochschild complex
We first review various known algebraic structures on the Hochschild (co)homology of a differential graded algebras under weak Poincare duality hypothesis, such as Calabi-Yau algebras, derivedExpand


Homotopy Batalin–Vilkovisky algebras
This paper provides an explicit cobrant resolution of the operad encoding Batalin{Vilkovisky algebras. Thus it denes the notion of homotopy Batalin{Vilkovisky algebras with the required homotopyExpand
Topological conformal field theories and Calabi–Yau categories
Abstract This is the first of two papers which construct a purely algebraic counterpart to the theory of Gromov–Witten invariants (at all genera). These Gromov–Witten type invariants depend on aExpand
Gerstenhaber-Batalin-Vilkoviski structures on coisotropic intersections
Let Y,Z be a pair of smooth coisotropic subvarieties in a smooth algebraic Poisson variety X. We show that any data of first order deformation of the structure sheaf O_X to a sheaf of noncommutativeExpand
A proof of a cyclic version of Deligne’s conjecture via Cacti
We generalize our results on Deligne's conjecture to prove the statement that the normalized Hochschild co--chains of a finite--dimensional associative algebra with a non--degenerate, symmetric,Expand
Curved Koszul duality theory
We extend the bar–cobar adjunction to operads and properads, not necessarily augmented. Due to the default of augmentation, the objects of the dual category are endowed with a curvature. As usual,Expand
New perspectives on the BRST-algebraic structure of string theory
Motivated by the descent equation in string theory, we give a new interpretation for the action of the symmetry charges on the BRST cohomology in terms of what we callthe Gerstenhaber bracket. ThisExpand
Batalin-Vilkovisky algebras and two-dimensional topological field theories
By a Batalin-Vilkovisky algebra, we mean a graded commutative algebraA, together with an operator Δ:A⊙→A⊙+1 such that Δ2 = 0, and [Δ,a]−Δa is a graded derivation ofA for alla∈A. In this article, weExpand
Spaces of algebra structures and cohomology of operads
The aim of this paper is two-fold. First, we compare two notions of a "space" of algebra structures over an operad A: 1. the classification space, which is the nerve of the category of weakExpand
Formality of canonical symplectic complexes and Frobenius manifolds
It is shown that the de Rham complex of a symplectic manifold $M$ satisfying the hard Lefschetz condition is formal. Moreover, it is shown that the differential Gerstenhaber-Batalin-VilkoviskiExpand
Open-Closed Homotopy Algebras and Strong Homotopy Leibniz Pairs Through Koszul Operad Theory
Open-closed homotopy algebras (OCHA) and strong homotopy Leibniz pairs (SHLP) were introduced by Kajiura and Stasheff in 2004. In an appendix to their paper, Markl observed that an SHLP is equivalentExpand
