De Rham Complex of a Gerstenhaber Algebra

Authors:  Vadim Schechtman
Author institution:Institut de Mathématiques de Toulouse, Université Paul Sabatier, 31062 Toulouse, France


We introduce a notion of the De Rham complex of a Gerstenhaber algebra which produces a notion of a “quasi-BV structure”, and allows one to classify these structures, generalizing the classical results by Koszul for polyvector fields.

2010 Math. Subj. Class. 14F40, 13D03.

Keywords: De Rham complex, Hochschild cohomology, Gerstenhaber algebra, Batalin–Vilkovysky algebra.
