Hi all,

My name is Ernesto Gonzales. I'm an analog circuit designer. While I already have a MSc in it and I love it, I also would like to spend the last half of my 20s studying some more math.

At my alma mater, there's a school of thought for designing electronics called "Structured Electronic Design". There seems to be a possibility that Category theory could be applied to it. But if not, learning something new is also a win for me :)

Hi, Ernesto! There are some cool connections between analog circuits and category theory. I wrote a paper on this topic with Brendan Fong back when he was my grad student:

It has some mistakes that we're trying to fix... this week!

A lot of this stuff generalizes to circuits with non-passive components, and I've started working on those with some other students:
