If you have a question about this talk, please contact Tamara von Glehn.

In this talk I will present a new proof assistant, Globular, which makes it easy to construct compositional proofs in semistrict higher categories, up to dimension 4. We will start with an easy tutorial—-bring your laptop and follow along!—-and then look in detail at some more complex examples drawn from topology and algebra.

Unlike most talks on higher category theory, no existing knowledge of higher category theory will be needed to understand this talk. Everything will be accessible to Masters students, and to mathematicians from other fields.

This talk is part of the Category Theory Seminar series.
