# Topology & geometry, Ezra Getzler (Northwestern University), "The derived Maurer-Cartan locus"

2:00pm to 3:35pm

## Location:

Ross building, Hebrew University (Seminar Room 70A)

Abstract:
Derived algebraic geometry is a nonlinear analogue of homological algebra, in which one keeps track of syzygies among the relations among the defining equations of a variety, and higher analogues. It has important applications to intersection theory and enumerative geometry.
