### Stacks and Maurer-Cartan elements

One can associate to any deformation problem a dg Lie or $L_{\infty}$-algebra $g$.
For instance, in algebraic deformation theory, let's say the deformation theory of algebras over a Koszul operad $P$, ...

### Higher commutators in E_n algebras and the Maurer--Cartan equation

Let $A$ be an associative algebra in $dgVect_k$. Then the commutator $[\cdot,\cdot]:A\otimes A\to A$ defined by $[x,y]=xy-(-1)^{|x||y|}yx$ gives $A$ the structure of a (dg-)Lie algebra. The ...

### Kodaira Spencer map and versal deformation

First I want to clarify what I mean by the Kodaira-Spencer map.
Let's have a family of deformations $\pi:\mathcal{X}\rightarrow B$ of a complex manifold $X=\mathcal{X}_0:=f^{-1}(0)$ (by that I mean ...

### Massey Products vs. $A_\infty$-Structures

Does anyone know a good reference for a proof of the fact that given a dga $A$, an $A_\infty$-structure on $HA$ is ''the same'' as coherent choices for all of the higher Massey products of $HA$? More ...

### Deformation theory of co-$A_\infty$ structures.

The following question is related to my previous post on co-$A_\infty$ spaces (co-$A_\infty$ spaces), but goes in a somewhat different direction.
Some Background:
In trying to classify $A_\infty$ ...

### Maurer-Cartan and representable functors on differential graded commutative algebras

Let $\mathfrak{g}$ be a differential graded Lie algebra on a charcteristic zero field, whose underlying chain complex is bounded below and degreewise finite dimensional. Then $\mathfrak{g}$ defines a ...
