Event Description: 

Abstract: In classic homotopy theory, the E infinity operad encodes multiplicative structures on spaces or spectra. Working equivariantly, there is a richer equivariant E infinity operad that encodes additional structure on a space with a group action. In this talk, I’ll discuss the differences between these two operads and give a comparison between their respective algebras.
