Topology Seminar

Tue., Sep. 21, 2021 3:00 p.m.

Location: Live Stream

Speaker: Martin Frankland, University of Regina

Title: Introduction to operads



Operads are a tool to encode algebraic structure. They were introduced in the 1960s to describe the structure found in loop spaces. They have since found applications in topology, algebra, and mathematical physics. This talk will be an introduction to operads and algebras over them. We will look at examples, including the associative, commutative, and Lie operads.
