A remarkable DGmodule model for configuration spaces

Pascal Lambrechts and Don Stanley

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 8 (2008) 1191–1222
Abstract

Let M be a simply connected closed manifold and consider the (ordered) configuration space F(M,k) of k points in M. In this paper we construct a commutative differential graded algebra which is a potential candidate for a model of the rational homotopy type of F(M,k). We prove that our model it is at least a Σk–equivariant differential graded model.

We also study Lefschetz duality at the level of cochains and describe equivariant models of the complement of a union of polyhedra in a closed manifold.
