" Infinity Properads "
Abstract: Properads are an extension of the notion of operad which allow one to model structures with many-to-many operations, such as various kinds of bialgebras. In this talk we will discuss models for up-to-homotopy versions of properads, including properadic analogues of quasi-categories and simplicial categories. We will also discuss some existing and potential applications.
