Higher-dimensional class concept is the research of n-categories, operads, braided monoidal different types, and different such unique buildings. It attracts its thought from components as diversified as topology, quantum algebra, mathematical physics, good judgment, and theoretical computing device technology. the guts of this booklet is the language of generalized operads. this is often as common and obvious a language for better type conception because the language of sheaves is for algebraic geometry, or vector areas for linear algebra. it truly is brought rigorously, then used to provide uncomplicated descriptions of a number of better express buildings. particularly, one attainable definition of n-category is mentioned intimately, and a few universal features of alternative attainable definitions are validated. this can be the 1st e-book at the topic and lays its foundations. it's going to attract either graduate scholars and proven researchers who desire to develop into accustomed to this contemporary department of mathematics.
