Unfortunately, they will probably look horrible in older browsers, like Netscape 4.x and IE 4.x. Moreover, many posts use MathML, which is, currently only supported in Mozilla. My best suggestion (and you will thank me when surfing an ever-increasing number of sites on the web which have been crafted to use the new standards) is to upgrade to the latest version of your browser. If that's not possible, consider moving to the Standards-compliant and open-source Mozilla browser.

Waldorf on Parallel Transport Functors

Posted by Urs Schreiber

The last talk today at Principal Bundles, Gerbes and Stacks (I, II) – leading over from the word of bundles to the world of 2-bundles, to be explored tomorrow – was

Konrad Waldorf
Parallel Transport and Functors
(pdf version of the talk)

summarizing our paper and a little of the 2-transport theory beyond that.

All those fed up by my exposition style should have a look at Konrad’s very nice talk.
