This paper gives a brief overview of concepts central to framed combinatorial topology. These concepts include:

  • Framed spaces and framed combinatorial spaces
  • Meshes and Trusses
  • Manifold diagrams and (tame) tangles
  • Ideas relating to combinatorial higher Morse Theory

While many details are being glossed over, the idea is that the given details are nonetheless presented in a mathematically self-contained way, in order to provide a minimal working set of definitions for the above concepts.
