Cohomology with coefficients for operadic coalgebras

  • Anita MajumdarEmail author
  • Donald Yau


Corepresentations of a coalgebra over a quadratic operad are defined, and various characterizations of them are given. Cohomology of such an operadic coalgebra with coefficients in a corepresentation is then studied.
