L-infinity and A-infinity structures: then and now

Jim Stasheff (Invited Contribution)

Abstract


Looking back over 55 years of higher homotopy structures, I reminisce
as I recall the early days and ponder how they developed and how I now
see them. From the history of A-infinity structures and later of L-infinity structures
and their progeny, I hope to highlight some old results which seem not to
have garnered the attention they deserve as well as some tantalizing new
connections.
