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.

Applied Category Theory

Posted by John Baez

The American Mathematical Society is having a meeting here at U. C. Riverside during the weekend of November 4th and 5th, 2017. I’m organizing a session on Applied Category Theory, and I’m looking for people to give talks.

The goal is to start a conversation about applications of category theory, not within pure math or fundamental physics, but to other branches of science and engineering — especially those where the use of category theory is not already well-established! For example, my students and I have been applying category theory to chemistry, electrical engineering, control theory and Markov processes.

Alas, we have no funds for travel and lodging. If you’re interested in giving a talk, please submit an abstract here:

More precisely, please read the information there and then click on the link in blue to submit an abstract. It should then magically fly through cyberspace to me! Abstracts are due September 12th, but the sooner you submit one, the greater the chance that we’ll have space.

For the program of the whole conference, go here:

We’ll be having some interesting plenary talks:

  • Paul Balmer, UCLA, An invitation to tensor-triangular geometry.

  • Pavel Etingof, MIT, Double affine Hecke algebras and their applications.

  • Monica Vazirani, U.C. Davis, Combinatorics, categorification, and crystals.

Re: Applied Category Theory

implementation and use of the theory need to be introduced to the students to get deeper into it
