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.

Adjoint School 2024

Posted by John Baez

Are you interested in applying category-theoretic methods to problems outside of pure mathematics? Apply to the Adjoint School!

Apply here. And do it soon.

  • December 31, 2023. Application Due.

  • February - May, 2024. Learning Seminar.

  • June 10 - 14, 2024. In-person Research Week at the University of Oxford, UK.

Participants are divided into four-person project teams. Each project is guided by a mentor and a TA. The Adjoint School has two main components: an online learning seminar that meets regularly between February and June, and an in-person research week held in the summer adjacent to the Applied Category Theory Conference.

During the learning seminar you will read, discuss, and respond to papers chosen by the project mentors. Every other week a pair of participants will present a paper which will be followed by a group discussion. After the learning seminar each pair of participants will also write a blog post, based on the paper they presented, for The n-Category Café.

Projects and Mentors:

  • Properties of Double Fibrations - Mentor: Dorette Pronk

  • Application of Skew Monoidal Categories - Mentor: Niccolò Veltri

  • Critical Pairs for String Diagram Rewriting - Mentor: Koko Muroya

  • Modelling Uncertainty with Markov Categories - Mentor: Paolo Perrone
