$2$–associahedra

Nathaniel Bottman

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 19 (2019) 743–806
Abstract

For any r 1 and n 0r {0} we construct a poset Wn called a 2–associahedron. The 2–associahedra arose in symplectic geometry, where they are expected to control maps between Fukaya categories of different symplectic manifolds. We prove that the completion Ŵn is an abstract polytope of dimension |n| + r 3. There are forgetful maps Wn Kr, where Kr is the (r2)–dimensional associahedron, and the 2–associahedra specialize to the associahedra (in two ways) and to the multiplihedra. In an appendix, we work out the 2– and 3–dimensional 2–associahedra in detail.
