If you have a question about this talk, please contact Paul Taylor. Distributive laws have a classical theory going back to Beck, and a slightly more two-dimensional theory due to Street. Recent work on the homotopy-coherent version of the formal theory of monads by Riehl and Verity has opened up obvious questions and a promising strategy for the analogue for distributive laws. I will discuss some of the history and motivations, as well as the challenges, of following this strategy. This is joint work with James Cranch and Daniel Schaeppi.
