Topological Equivalences of $E_\infty$ DGAs

Özet : In algebraic topology we often encounter chain complexes with extra multiplicative structure. For example, the cochain complex of a topological space has what is called the $E_\infty$-algebra structure which comes from the cup product. In this talk I present an idea for studying such chain complexes, $E_\infty$ differential graded algebras ($E_\infty$ DGAs), using stable homotopy theory. Namely, I discuss new equivalences between $E_\infty$ DGAS that are defined using commutative ring spectra.We say $E_\infty$ DGAs are $E_\infty$ topologically equivalent when the corresponding commutative ring spectra are equivalent. Quasi-isomorphic $E_\infty$ DGAs are $E_\infty$ topologically equivalent. However, the examples I am going to present show that the opposite is not true; there are $E_\infty$ DGAs that are $E_\infty$ topologically equivalent but not quasi-isomorphic. This says that between $E_\infty$ DGAs, we have more equivalences than just the quasi-isomorphisms. I also discuss interaction of $E_\infty$ topological equivalences with the Dyer-Lashof operations and cases where $E_\infty$ topological equivalences and quasi-isomorphisms agree.
