Joseph Hirsh, City University of New York Abstract: In this talk I will describe the classical yoga of deformation theory---that commutative moduli problems are locally described by dgLie algebras---and provide some examples. Then, importing tools from operad theory, most notably Koszul Duality, I will describe a generalization that classifies the local structure of noncommutative moduli problems.
I will conclude by describing some ongoing work to exploit the relationship between noncommutative deformation theory and Goodwillie's calculus of functors.
