Hypercommutative algebras, Batalin-Vilkovisky algebras, and Givental group I
Seminar Room 1, Newton Institute
AbstractI'll make a survey of several different ways to define a so-called Givental group. This group is, in some interpretations, a group of symmetries of the representations of the operad Hycomm, and plays an important role in the correspondence between the operads Hycomm and BV. I'll also try to make a link of this formalism to the topological recursion arising in the matrix models theory.
If it doesn't, something may have gone wrong with our embedded player.
We'll get it fixed as soon as possible.
