### On the notation $C[\lambda]$ where $C$ is a free cooperad in a proof of formality (and other details)

In his paper where details for Tamarkin's proof of formality are given, Hinich considers a Koszul quadratic operad $P$, a graded $P$-algebra $H$, a $P_\infty$-algebra $X$ with $HX=H$ (as $P$-algebras ...

### Is there a proof of the formality of configuration spaces of Euclidean spaces that do not involve operads?

By "configuration spaces of $\mathbb{R}^n$" I mean ordered configuration spaces:$$\operatorname{Conf}_k(\mathbb{R}^n) = \{ (x_1,\dots,x_k) \in (\mathbb{R}^n)^k \mid x_i \neq x_j, \, \forall i \neq j \}...

### Equivalence of deformations of non-associative algebras

Let $(\mathcal A,\mu)$ be an associative algebra. According to usual deformation theory, deformations of $(\mathcal A,\mu)$ as an associative algebra are controlled by a differential graded algebra (...

### Analogue of Kontsevich's formality theorem for quantization of Courant algebroids

In his 1997 preprint, M. Kontsevich proved the formality of the differential graded algebra controlling deformations of the associative and commutative algebra of functions on a manifold, seen as an ...

### Rational Hodge Theory

I am currently learning about the formality result for Kaehler manifolds proved in DGMS. Their result uses some basic Hodge theory, and so only gives formality over $\mathbf{R}$. Later, however, ...

### Morphisms between formal dg-algebras

Suppose we are given a map $f:A \rightarrow B$ between two dg-algebras which are formal.
Is the map $f$ also "formal" in some sense?
More precisely can we find isomorphisms $\phi_A:A\rightarrow H^\...

### Leray degeneration for smooth projective morphisms and formality of families of compact Kähler manifolds

Let $\pi \colon X \to S$ be a smooth projective morphism of algebraic varieties, say over $\mathbf C$. By Deligne's argument ("Théorème de Lefschetz...", 1968), there is for each $i$ an injection
$$ \...

### How to define the equivalence of Maurer-Cartan elements in an $L_{\infty}$-algebra?

First let $L^{\bullet}$ be a pro-nilpotent differential graded Lie algebra (dgla). We have the set of Maurer-Cartan elements in $L^{\bullet}$ ($MC(L^{\bullet})$) which are $\alpha \in L^1$ such that ...

### What is the definition of “the $L_\infty$ part of a $G_\infty$ morphism”?

We know that in Tamarkin's proof of Kontsevich's formality theorem, he defined the $G_\infty$ structure on the Hochschild cochain complex $C^\cdot(A,A)$ and constructed a $G_\infty$ morphism from $HH^\...

### Formality of $A_\infty$-category vs formality of its total algebra

Let $\cal C$ be an $A_\infty$-category and $A$ its total algebra (elements in $A$ are formal linear combinations of arbitrary morphisms in $\cal C$ and multiplications of arrows which can't be ...

### Formality of Ext algebras and direct sums

Does taking direct summands/sums preserve formality of ext-algebras? More precisely:
Given an abelian category, say linear over a field and with enough injectives, one gets an $A_\infty$-srutcture on ...

### What is known about formality of flag varieties?

Let $G$ be a connected, complex reductive algebraic group and $X=G/P$ a (partial) flag variety. For example by "Real homotopy theory of Kähler manifolds", we know that its cohomology with real ...
