If you have a question about this talk, please contact Mustapha Amrani. Grothendieck-Teichmller Groups, Deformation and Operads The Grothendieck-Teichmller group can be defined algebraically, as the automorphism group of an operad in groupoids, the operad of parenthesized braids. I will explain that this operad represents the fundamental groupoid of the little 2-discs operad. The homotopy automorphisms considered in my lecture series represent a topological counterpart of the automorphisms of an algebraic operad. In this lecture, I will explain the precise definition of this notion, and of a rational version of the notion of a homotopy automorphism, where we neglect torsion phenomena. The result which I aim to establish precisely asserts that, in the case of the little 2-discs operad, the group of rational homotopy automorphisms reduce to homotopy automorphisms that can be detected by their action on fundamental groupoids.
