Abstract: This will be a leisurely introduction, from first principles, to higher gauge theory with higher groupoids as gauge structures. As a model for higher (Lie) groupoids we will use Kan simplicial manifolds. In this approach higher connections take naturally values in L-infinity algebroids.
This is the second talk of the monthly seminar: "Mathematics emerging from the Quantum, and beyond: where Renormalisation meets Geometry" organised jointly with friends and colleagues from various countries in Europe.
You are welcome to invite your friends and colleagues to join us!
