**An Introduction to Topos Physics**

by Marios Tsatsos

**Publisher**: arXiv 2008**Number of pages**: 104

**Description**:

The basic notion of how topoi can be utilized in physics is presented here. Topos and category theory serve as valuable tools which extend our ordinary set-theoretical conceptions, can further the study of quantum logic and give rise to new and 'neo-realistic' descriptions of quantum physics, i.e. make possible the construction of a general scheme for quantum physics, which 'looks like' the classical one.
