An Introduction to Topos Physics

An Introduction to Topos Physics
by

Publisher: arXiv
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.

There is extensive network of analogies between physics, topology, logic and computation. In this paper we make these analogies precise using the concept of 'closed symmetric monoidal category'. We assume no prior knowledge of category theory.
