Publisher: University of Sheffield

Description:
This work gives an explanatory introduction to various definitions of higher-dimensional category. The emphasis is on ideas rather than formalities; the aim is to shed light on the formalities by emphasizing the intuitions that lead there. To aid this, the tone is informal and there are copious pictures.
