If you have a question about this talk, please contact Mustapha Amrani. Grothendieck-Teichmller Groups, Deformation and Operads The rational homotopy theory of spaces is the study of topological spaces modulo torsion. The rational homotopy of a space is determined by two dual algebraic models: the Sullivan model, defined by a commutative dg-algebra structure, and the Quillen model, defined by a Lie dg-algebra. Furthermore, each space has a minimal Sullivan model, which can be used to prove that the rational homotopy automorphisms of a space form an algebraic group, with a deformation complex of the Sullivan model as Lie algebra. The purpose of this lecture is to provide a survey of these results, after short recollections on the definition of the Sullivan model of a space. General reference: B.
