Unfortunately, they will probably look horrible in older browsers, like Netscape 4.x and IE 4.x. Moreover, many posts use MathML, which is, currently only supported in Mozilla. My best suggestion (and you will thank me when surfing an ever-increasing number of sites on the web which have been crafted to use the new standards) is to upgrade to the latest version of your browser. If that's not possible, consider moving to the Standards-compliant and open-source Mozilla browser.

Function T-Algebras on ∞-Stacks

Posted by Urs Schreiber

Over the course of this year, Herman Stel has been working on a master thesis and I have been advising him. Yesterday was the defense. See

Abstract For TT any abelian Lawvere theory, we establish a Quillen adjunction between model category structures on cosimplicial TT-algebras and on simplicial presheaves over duals of TT-algebras, whose left adjoint forms algebras of functions with values in the canonical TT-line object. We find mild general conditions under which this descends to the local model structure that models \infty-stacks over duals of TT-algebras.

For TT the theory of associative algebras this reproduces the situation in Toën’s Champs affine . We consider the case where TT is the theory of smooth algebras: the case of synthetic differential geometry. In particular, we work towards a definition of smooth \infty-vector bundles with flat connection. To that end we analyse the tangent category of the category of smooth algebras and Kock’s simplicial model for synthetic combinatorial differential forms which may be understood as an \infty-categorification of Grothendieck’s de Rham space functor.
