What is a Homotopy between $L_\infty$-algebra morphisms II

I would like to continue on question I asking, what is a homotopy between Lie infinity algebras, since I'm not satisfied in two directions: 1.) The naive approach to define a homotopy would be ...

What is a Homotopy between $L_\infty$-algebra morphisms

A $L_\infty$-algebra can be defined in many different ways. One common way, that gives the 'right' kind of morphisms, is that a $L_\infty$-algebra is a graded cocommutative and coassociative ...

Explicit Lie May structure on cosimplicial DG Lie algebras

In the paper "Homotopy Lie algebras", Schechtman and Hinich proved that any cosimplicial differential graded Lie algebra has the structure of a 'Lie May algebra'. If my understanding is right here, ...

homotopy type of connected Lie groups

Is there a simple proof (short and low-tech) of the following fact: (E. Cartan) A connected real Lie group $G$ is diffeomorphic (as a manifold) to $K\times\mathbb{R}^n$ where $K$ is a maximal ...

homotopy between solutions of Maurer-Cartan equation

If $S_0, S_1$ are two solutions of Maurer-Cartan equation $dS+\frac{1}{2}{S,S}=0$ for a dg-Lie algebra $g$, do we have a suitable concept of homotopy between $S_0$ and $S_1$?
