Note:These pages make extensive use of the latest XHTML and CSS Standards. They ought to look great in any standards-compliant modern browser. 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.

Timing, Span(Graph) and Cospan(Graph)

Posted by Emily Riehl

Guest post by Siddharth Bhat and Pim de Haan. Many thanks to Mario Román for proofreading this blogpost.

This paper explores modelling automata using the Span/Cospan framework by Sabadini and Walters. The aim of this blogpost is to introduce the key constructions that are used in this paper, and to explain how these categorical constructions allow us to talking about modelling automata and timing in these automata.
