Graduate Colloquium

Brandon Allen to speak on

Category Theory: String Diagrams

Abstract: In this talk, I will give a brief introduction to a field known as Category Theory. One hard concept to handle in the beginning of Category Theory is the natural transformation. However, thanks to the Poincare Dual, we have an efficient way to visualize the relations that the natural transformation has with our categorical diagrams known as string diagrams. We shall delve into some basic proofs using string diagrams and importance of string diagrams into other fields of mathematics if time permits. No prior knowledge is needed for coming to this talk.
