comment Homotopy type of embeddings of circle in the plane
My guess is because the group of self-homeos of the circle has contractible identity component (a homeo lifts to a map $\mathbb R\to\mathbb R$, and the latter is a strictly increasing or decreasing function which you can deform to a linear one)

What do you mean by embedding,exxactly? If the maps are injective then you have only two contractible components, no?

comment Singular projective variety where the Cartan homomorphism is not an isomorphism?
The Hilbert series in that situation converges to a rational function which can be evaluated at everything which is not a pole.

You talk about a linked question in your question but there is no link?

comment Are there any Algebraic Geometry Theorems that were proved using Combinatorics?
Mathematical truth has very few sources. Arithmetic is one, combinatorics is another. Most things have a genealogy which goes all the way to these true Adam and Eves, through a surprisingly short chain of begats.

comment Hochschild cohomology of the skew group ring D(X)#G in the complex analytic case
It would probably be a good idea to tell us what $D(X)$ is.

comment Defining the cup product in Ext using a Kunneth formula
I'd say that if you really know how to lift cocycles to chain maps in an example, you also know how to write down the diagonal map :-)

comment Defining the cup product in Ext using a Kunneth formula
Sometimes, yes (specially when you only need to compute a few products, rather than the whole thing) but the reduction ofmcup products to conputations in the derived category is not a reduction, as the Principle of Conservation of Difficulty kicks in.

That naive attempt at combining the two ideas is way too naive!
