Physics, Topology, Logic and Computation: A Rosetta Stone
by John C. Baez, Mike Stay
Publisher: arXiv 2009
Number of pages: 73
With the rise of interest in quantum cryptography and quantum computation, it became clear that there is extensive network of analogies between physics, topology, logic and computation. In this expository paper, we make some of these analogies precise using the concept of 'closed symmetric monoidal category'. We assume no prior knowledge of category theory, proof theory or computer science.

These are lecture notes for a course on the theory of Clifford algebras. The various applications include vector space and projective geometry, orthogonal maps and spinors, normed division algebras, as well as simplicial complexes and graph theory.

Starting from Brownian Motion, the lectures quickly got into the areas of Stochastic Differential Equations and Diffusion Theory. The section on Martingales is based on additional lectures given by K. Ramamurthy of the Indian Institute of Science.
