Title:De Rham's theorem and parallel transport
Seminar:GAP Seminar
Speaker:Florian Schätz, Técnico, Lisbon
Abstract:
I will outline Guggenheim's construction of an homotopy equivalence between the dg algebra of differential forms and of singular cochains, respectively, and explain how this allows to systematically assign higher dimensional holonomies to Z-graded connections, thereby recovering and extending results of K. Igusa and Block/Smith. This talk is based on joint work (partly in progress) with Camilo Arias Abad.
