“To operate the machine, it is not necessary to raise the bonnet.”
Tom, yes it is, and Vidit is referring to the Math Review of Frank's book. |

“To operate the machine, it is not necessary to raise the bonnet.”
Vidit, that isn't a capital M meant is it? I'm sure I heard Frank say that quote in a talk, but I can't remember when or where. I also couldn't find it in his "Infinite loop spaces", but that sure is still enjoyable reading. Let me just recommend it. |

Tensor products over operads and bar constructions
Hey, slow down and look at the "bar construction'' in the cited reference: O is a monad acting on the left on an algebra (or more generally on a functor out of some domain category) and on the right on a functor (such as the n-fold suspension when O is the little n-cubes operad). I assume right module is meant in the sense of Fresse's book ``Modules over operads and functors'', but I don't see that as a functor with a right action by the monad O, so I don't see what bar construction you have in mind. |

What are algebras for the little n-balls/n-cubes/n-something operads exactly?
Intuition here is fine, but what, precisely, do you mean by an "E_n operad" in a general context. I know precisely what we mean in topology (or differential graded module) contexts. |

Identifying a Hopf algebra cohomology theory
It seems to me that the natural action, under which you would be looking at a cobar construction, would just come from the diagonal on the left most tensor factor H. |
