Cambridge Tracts in Mathematics : Coherence in Three-Dimensional Category Theory Series Number 201, Hardback Book

Cambridge Tracts in Mathematics : Coherence in Three-Dimensional Category Theory Series Number 201 Hardback

Description

Dimension three is an important test-bed for hypotheses in higher category theory and occupies something of a unique position in the categorical landscape.

At the heart of matters is the coherence theorem, of which this book provides a definitive treatment, as well as covering related results.

Along the way the author treats such material as the Gray tensor product and gives a construction of the fundamental 3-groupoid of a space.

The book serves as a comprehensive introduction, covering essential material for any student of coherence and assuming only a basic understanding of higher category theory.

It is also a reference point for many key concepts in the field and therefore a vital resource for researchers wishing to apply higher categories or coherence results in fields such as algebraic topology or theoretical computer science.
