If you have a question about this talk, please contact Ivan Smith. The Steenrod square is a ring homomorphism from the cohomology of a topological space to the Z/2-equivariant cohomology of this space (with the trivial Z/2-action). Given a closed monotone symplectic manifold, we will define a deformed notion of the Steenrod square for quantum cohomology, which will not in general be a ring homomorphism, and prove the quantum Cartan formula as a deformation of the classical Cartan formula. Time permitting, we will frame these in the broader setting of Seidel’s equivariant pair-of-pants product.
