Free factorization algebras and homology of configuration spaces in algebraic geometry

Quoc P. Ho (University of Chicago)

We provide a construction of free factorization algebras in algebraic geometry and link factorization homology of a scheme with coefficients in a free factorization algebra to the homology of its (unordered) configuration spaces. As an application, we obtain a purely algebro-geometric proof of homological stability of configuration spaces.
