    The title is a bit misleading since you have something much more spectral in mind. Some misprints in the references.

    Thansk, Jim.

    I have now added a warning remark here about a possible simplicial meaning of augmentation that one might think of.

    Also I have fixed some misprints. (Possiby I did introduce new misprints though… ;-)

    Not sure I made my point clear; there is the notion of augmentation for an Aoo-algebra pure and simple

    there is the notion of augmentation for an Aoo-algebra pure and simple

    Hm, you mean a notion different from the pure and simple “equipped with a map to the base \infty-ring”, as in the entry?

    Maybe you just want me to make a distinction between on the one hand A A_\infty-algebras in characteristic 0, hence in chain complexes and on the other the general notion of A A_\infty-algebras in spectra? If so, I’d ask: why? The simple definition of augmentation does not depend on this.

    Haha, speaking of misprints: I know of a mathematician named Gregory Arone, but not Fregory Arone! :-)

    I just meant without invoking $E_\infty$

    Jim, in case this helps, you can render LaTeX in comments by first clicking on Markdown+Itex, where it says “Format comments as” below the comment box.

    I have added:

    to the base E-∞ ring (which might be a plain commutative ring).

    Does that help?

    yes, that helps

    added to the Definition-section of augmented A-infinity algebra a pointer to the very general definition in Higher Algebra.
