Mathematics, Applied Mathematics and Statistics’ Nick Gurski presents at Category Theory Octoberfest

Nick Gurski, assistant professor in the Department of Mathematics, Applied Mathematics and Statistics, gave a presentation titled “Pseudofunctors and simplicial categories” at the Category Theory Octoberfest 2019 at Johns Hopkins University.

Gurski spoke about ongoing research at the Category Theory Octoberfest, an annual conference for category theory, algebraic topology, theoretical computer science and related subjects. He discussed joint work with Daniel Schaeppi of the University of Regensburg-Germany, which is a generalization of the equivalence between enriched, tensored categories and representations for use in higher dimensional category theory.
