### Alm on Quantization as a Kan Extension

#### Posted by Urs Schreiber

Recently I was contacted by Johan Alm, a beginning PhD student at Stockholm University, Sweden, with Prof. Merkulov.

He wrote that he had thought about formalizing and proving aspects of the idea that appeared as the The $n$-Café Quantum Conjecture about the nature of [[path integral quantization ]].

After a bit of discussion of his work, we thought it would be nice to post some of his notes here:

$n$Café-regulars may be pleased to meet some old friends in there, such as the [[Leinster measure]] starring in its role as a canonical path integral measure.

Hi Urs,

In the beggining of the notes, Johan Alm cites Witten’s achivements in understanding path integrals, which makes me remember that you once promised to talk and open a discussion about his article “Branes and Quantization”. Did you forget that?
