Gravity properad, moduli spaces M_g,n, and string topology

Aug 31, 2022, 11:00 AM


Sergei Merkulov (Luxembourg)


Using Thomas Willwacher’s twisting endofunctor, and Kevin Costello’s theory of partially compactified moduli spaces of algebraic curves of arbitrary genus with marked points, we introduce a new dg properad which contains Ezra Getzler’s operad controlling genus zero moduli spaces. We discuss its applications in the theory of moduli spaces $M_g,n$, and in string topology
