### Why does the cotangent complex really have a distinguished triangle?

Associated to any ring maps $A\to B\to C$ there is the distinguished triangle
$$\mathbf{L}_{B/A}\otimes^L_BC\ \longrightarrow \ \mathbf{L}_{C/A} \ \longrightarrow \ \mathbf{L}_{C/B} \ \stackrel{+1}{\...

### Computer Algebra solution for simplicial resolutions for André-Quillen cohomology

Hello,
I would like to experiment with André-Quillen (co)homology. Especially for singular rings.
A key problem is that the construction of a simplicial resolution of a ring seems to require a rather ...

### Explicit computation of the cotangent complex in a non-lci case

Is there an example of a non-lci morphism $X\rightarrow Y$ for which the entire cotangent complex (or just Andre-Quillen cohomology) can be explicitly computed? I believe it is a theorem of Avramov ...

### Does the cotangent complex commute with coequalisers?

I would like to know if the cotangent complex (say of rings) commutes with coequalisers. More precisely, let
$B_1\rightrightarrows B_2\rightarrow C$
be a coequaliser of $A$-algebras. Is then the ...

### Comparing definitions of cotangent complex

Consider the following two ways of defining the cotangent complex of a ring map $R \rightarrow A$ (Let $P^{\bullet} \rightarrow A$ be a polynomial resolution):
As the complex $\Omega^1_{P^{\bullet}/R}...
