Speaker: Claude Roger, Lyon

Abstract: We shall give a survey of different examples, together with algebraic methods to deal with those structures: graded algebra, cohomologies, cohomology operations. The corresponding geometric structures will be described, with particular emphasis on supergeometry, odd supersymplectic structures and their classi fication. Finally, we shall try to explain how BV-structures appear in Quantum Field Theory, as a version of functional integral quantization.
