## Syntax of category theory

Syntax of category theory

Generalization of the syntax

Morphism; functors [ multimorphisms ; operads (n inputs; 1 output) ]

Without transitive closure: have path dependence

## Relationship to type theory

Relationship to type theory

Arrows in type theory are functions

type constructors are rules in WM

Propositions as Types

Types as mw systems

Hierarchy

breaking down universal computational into a geometrical hierarchy

Necessarily, we’ve defined a face here...

Given a triangle in any graph, it could be a face. [[But ... many cycles in a graph aren’t naturally faces.]]

1 morphism : joins 2 objects [ maps from 0-morphisms to 0-morphisms ]

2 morphism : maps from 1-morphisms to 1-morphisms

2 morphism : maps from 1-morphisms to 1-morphisms

operad : n-ary function mapping from n 0-morphisms to 1 0-morphisms [?]

## Space of all symbolic transformation rules

Space of all symbolic transformation rules

Can be decomposed into transformation for things without , and things with

## Correspondence with type theory

Correspondence with type theory

A multiway system is like a type; the rules are the type constructor ; the terms of the type are states of the multiway systems ;; paths are proofs of equality

inhabitation of a type: multiway system has at least one state

multiway systems that are not inhabited:

## Set theory

Set theory

{{},{{}},{}}

Only possible base is {}

ur-element : has base elements other than { }

Think only in terms of n-categories for small n....

Light cones: provability cone

“Faster than proof travel”: have to go outside of a given mathematical framework

## Foundations of mathematics

Foundations of mathematics

Axioms are transformations for symbolic expressions

two interpretations of mw graphs:

i) expression to expression (expressions are propositions)

ii) nodes are propositions

the act of doing mathematics is the act of coarse-graining...

a mathematician is a coarse-grainner

models are labels the mathematical observer is using

axiomatic carving of rulial space is the multiway graphs

A model of a mathematical observer...

category theory is like axiomatic systems, GR is like our models of physics
