### Characterizing the rationalization of spaces.

In the category of rational spaces, loop spaces split as products of Eilenberg-Mac Lane spaces and SUSPENSIONS split as wedges of (rational) spheres. I wonder if anything of the following form is ...

### Reference request: splittings in rational homotopy theory

It is well known that for simply-connected rational spaces, every suspension splits as a wedge of rational spheres and every loop space splits as a product of rational Eilenberg-Mac Lane spaces. ...

### Formality of algebraic varieties via l-adic cohomology?

The cohomology with say real coefficients of any smooth projective algebraic variety is formal, by Deligne, Griffiths, Morgan, Sullivan: Real homotopy theory of Kähler manifolds, Inv. Math. 29, 245-...

### Mysterious property of $\mathbb{Q}$

Hi, I am currently working through the paper by Bousfield and Gugenheim on rational homotopy theory, and have come to a point where they show why it is important to work over $\mathbb{Q}$, and not ...

### Rational homotopy theory of a punctured manifold

Let $M$ be a smooth simply connected manifold and let $N$ be $M$ minus a point. Is it possible to construct an explicit Sullivan model for $N$ (i.e. a commutative differential graded algebra (cdga) ...

### A non-formal space with vanishing Massey products?

Let $X$ be a polyhedron. For each $n$-dimensional face $f$ of $X$ fix a homeomorphism $\sigma_f:\triangle^n\to f$ where $\triangle^n$ is the standard $n-$simplex so that whenever $f$ is a face of $f'$ ...

### Homotopy type of the self-homotopy equivalences of a bouquet of spheres

Before I state the questions I have in mind, let me give some background. If one considers $S^2$ then it is known due to Kneser that $\textrm{Homeo}^{+}(S^2)$ has the homotopy type of $SO(3)$. By ...

### Is the polynomial de Rham functor a Quillen equivalence?

It is known that the rational homotopy theory of spaces (e.g. simplicial sets) is equivalent in some sense to the homotopy theory of cdgas over $\mathbb{Q}$. This has been expressed in various forms ...

### Minimal models with local coefficients

Let $X$ be a path-connected nilpotent space (meaning $\pi_1(X)$ is nilpotent and acts nilpotently on the higher homotopy groups). Let $\rho\colon\thinspace\pi_1(X)\to \mathrm{Gl}(V)$ be a ...

### Reference for functors in Kadeishvili's C_\infty paper

In his paper Cohomology $C_\infty$-algebra and rational homotopy type, Tornike Kadeishvili describes how the rational cohomology of a simply-connected space carries the structure of a $C_\infty$-...

### Higher homotopy algebraic structure on the homology of an operad

Given a DGA $A$, then by standard techniques such as homological perturbation theory, the ring structure on the homology $H(A)$ extends to a minimal $A_\infty$-algebra structure such that $H(A)$ is ...

### Rational homotopy type of a complement

Let $X$ and $X'$ be smooth closed manifolds. Take closed subpolyhedra $D\subset X$ and $D'\subset X'$ (with respect to some triangulations) and let $f:X\to X'$ be a homotopy equivalence such that \$f(D)...
