My students have been thinking hard about category theory for a few years, but they've decided it's time to get deeper into applications. Christian Williams, in particular, seems to have caught my zeal for trying to develop new math to help save the planet.

We'll try to videotape the talks to make it easier for you to follow along. I'll also start discussions here and/or on the Azimuth blog. It'll work best if you read the papers we're talking about and then join these discussions. Ask questions, and answer any questions you can!

Here's how the schedule of talks seems to be shaping up so far:

- [[Applied Category Theory Seminar]].

Abstract.The global warming crisis is part of a bigger transformation in which humanity realizes that the Earth is a finite system and that our population, energy usage, and the like cannot continue to grow exponentially. If civilization survives this transformation, it will affect mathematics - and be affected by it - just as dramatically as the agricultural revolution or industrial revolution. We should get ready!
