Cogroups in algebras over an operad are free algebras

Benoit Fresse[1]

(1) Université de Nice, France

Let $\cal P$ be an operad defined over a field of characteristic zero. Let R be a cogroup in the category of complete ${\cal P}$-algebras. In this article, we show that R is necessarily the completion of a free ${\cal P}$-algebra. We also handle the case of cogroups in connected graded algebras over an operad, and the case of groups in connected graded coalgebras over an operad.

Keywords: Cogroup, operad
