Applied category theory seminar

The applied category theory will continue starting in January, but in a very different form. We're going to have a seminar on applied category theory here at U. C. Riverside!

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:

    Another talk:

    February 19, 2019: Kenny Courser Category theory for genetics

    Abstract. Rémy Tuyéras has developed a categorical framework aimed at handling various commonly studied subjects from the theory of genetics. Some of these include alignment methods, CRISPR, homologous recombination, haplotypes, and genetic linkage. In this talk, I will introduce the foundations on which this framework is built and give a few examples related to DNA and RNA sequencing which are able to be described in this environment.
