If you have a question about this talk, please contact Mustapha Amrani. Grothendieck-Teichmller Groups, Deformation and Operads The little n-discs operads, where n = 1,2,...,infinity, are used to define a hierarchy of homotopy commutative structures, from fully associative but non-commutative (n=1) up to fully associative and commutative (n=infinity). In the construction of such homotopy commutative structures, we generally have to deal with operads which are just weakly-equivalent to the little n-discs, and the name of an E_n-operad has been introduced to refer to this notion. In this first lecture, I will give an introduction to E_n-operads and their applications. I will notably report on the following significant issues: formality, Koszul duality, and recognition theorems. General reference:B. Fresse, “Homotopy of operads and Grothendieck-Teichmller Groups”.
