Abstract/Media

I'll give a geometric construction of operations on the homology of the free loop space of a closed manifold parametrized by the homology of the harmonic compactification of moduli space. This will be obtained by considering what a "general" string topology operation is, giving a description of the space of all such operations, and recognizing the harmonic compactification as a space that naturally maps to string topology operations. This is joint work (in progress) with Nancy Hingston.
