Quantizing deformation theory II

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


A quantization of classical deformation theory, based on the Maurer-Cartan Equation dS +12[S, S] = 0 in dg-Lie algebras, a theory based on the Quantum Master Equation dS +ħΔS + 1 2{S, S} = 0 in dg-BV-algebras, is proposed. Representability theorems for solutions of the Quantum Master Equation are proven. Examples of “quantum” deformations are presented.
