Examples of Algebraic Operads

Part of the Grundlehren der mathematischen Wissenschaften book series (GL, volume 346)


In Chap.  9, we studied in detail the operad Ass encoding the associative algebras. It is a paradigm for nonsymmetric operads, symmetric operads, cyclic operads. In this chapter we present several other examples of operads. First, we present the two other “graces”, the operads Com and Lie encoding respectively the commutative (meaning commutative and associative) algebras, and the Lie algebras. Second, we introduce more examples of binary quadratic operads: Poisson, Gerstenhaber, pre-Lie, Leibniz, Zinbiel, dendriform, magmatic, several variations like Jordan algebra, divided power algebra, Batalin–Vilkovisky algebra. Then we present various examples of operads involving higher ary-operations: homotopy algebras, infinite-magmatic, brace, multibrace, Jordan triples, Lie triples. The choice is dictated by their relevance in various parts of mathematics: differential geometry, noncommutative geometry, harmonic analysis, algebraic combinatorics, theoretical physics, computer science. Of course, this list does not exhaust the examples appearing in the existing literature. The reader may have a look at the cornucopia of types of algebras 2012 to find more examples.
