### On Transport Theory

#### Posted by Urs Schreiber

On Wed., Feb. 22, 18:00 there will be a talk (Hamburg math department)

**Abstract:**

Posted at February 17, 2006 3:18 PM UTC$n$-transports are an $n$-functors describing

$\u2022$ parallel trasport in $n$-bundles

$\u2022$ propagation in $n$-dimensional QFT.We describe basic notions of $n$-transport theory, such as trivialization, transition and trace and discuss examples.

This is a synthesis of the material contained in [I, II, III, IV, V, VI].

## Re: On Transport Theory

This looks fascinating. Wish I could be there to hear it. Good luck!

PS: How far away are you from describing string theory within this framework of transport, i.e. QFT, on loop space (if that was the goal)? :)
