Abstract

We show that the secondary Hochschild cohomology associated to a triple $(A,B, \epsilon)$ has several of the properties of the usual Hochschild cohomology. Among others, we prove that the total secondary Hochschild complex is a multiplicative nonsymmetric operad, discuss the connection with extensions of $B$-algebras, and give a Hodge-type decomposition of the secondary Hochschild cohomology.
