]]>We introduce categories of weak factorization algebras and factorization spaces, and prove that they are equivalent to the categories of ordinary factorization algebras and spaces, respectively. This allows us to define the pullback of a factorization algebra or space by an 'etale morphism of schemes, and hence to define the notion of a universal factorization space or algebra. This provides a generalization to higher dimensions and to non-linear settings of the notion of a vertex algebra.

Maybe he changed the affiliation and lost the account. Google for te search

Tsukuba Makoto site:www.ms.u-tokyo.ac.jp

still gives the above URL as the first hit, so the change must have been very recent. The title of the document Tsukuba.pdf is “Recent developments of chiral categories”. Makoto also has a blog

http://makotosakurai.blogspot.com (maybe we should list it under math blogs ? but it seems to be inactive for a while)

where at http://makotosakurai.blogspot.com/2009/07/recent-developments-of-chiral.html is an entry on this topic with the same obsolete pdf link as above.

]]>I have briefly added at factorization algebra a pointed to Gaitsgory-Francis.

]]>This is quite interesting (slides, related subject):

]]>I added to factorization algebra today's reference from the arxiv:

- Gregory Ginot, Thomas Tradler, Mahmoud Zeinalian,
*Derived higher Hochschild homology, topological chiral homology and factorization algebras*, arxiv/1011.6483

By the way, I find it useful that in the links for arxiv papers the number is seen/printed.
