Speaker: Giuseppe Bonavolonta, University of Luxembourg

Abstract: The solution functor for a non-linear PDE is a Set valued functor over the category of D-algebras (D is the ring of differential operators). In order to allow for more general spaces we consider functors with value in the category SSet of simplicial sets, as well as SSet-valued functors defined over the category of differential graded D algebras. We describe some results (ongoing research) about applications to field theory.
