Title: Introduction to operads (MI-talk)
Speaker: Ieke Moerdijk
Operads were introduced in the 1970s in an attempt to describe the algebraic structure of loop spaces in topology, but have since made their appearance in many other parts of mathematics. The goal of this talk will be to give an introduction to the theory of operads accessible to our master students. If time permits, I will end with a new view on (Koszul) duality for operads.
