## Abstract

We give a general treatment of the Maurer–Cartan equation in homotopy algebras and describe the operads and formal differential geometric objects governing the corresponding algebraic structures. We show that the notion of Maurer–Cartan twisting is encoded in certain automorphisms of these universal objects.
