|Title:||De Rham's theorem and parallel transport|
|Speaker:||Florian Schätz, Técnico, Lisbon|
|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.|
