From zero to manifold-diagrammatic higher categories
Abstract and PDF downloads
This document contains the ‘bare minimum’ of self-contained mathematics needed for giving a (or, rather, some form of) definition of manifold-diagrammatic higher categories. More gentle introductions to manifold diagrams, combinatorial manifold diagrams, and their related models of higher categories exist, see related material below.
