81. SubjectOverview
A topos is a category that is good enough for set theory. The results of topos theory(as in any theory) hinge on the interaction of objects and morphisms.
Subject Overview (Mathematical Research) For a less technical description of the work please read the essay: From Topology, Logic and Category to the Geometric Mathematical Framework: Research Explained Subject Background: Locales The Tychonoff theorem states that an arbitrary product of compact topological spaces is compact. My understanding is that the proof of a Tychonoff theorem without the axiom of choice by Johnstone in 1981 does not appear to have caused a huge response (certainly amongst mathematicians outside the confines of the study of the foundations). Apart from the complicated set-theoretic ordinal induction in the proof (later removed using techniques described below) one of the reasons for this lack of interest, I speculate, is the fact that most topologists would have dismissed the result as absurd. This is for the good reason that the Tychonoff result is well known to imply the axiom of choice and so how can one have a proof without choice? Of course Johnstone (and many before him, possibly back to Wallman 1938) was modelling spaces using locales (that is using complete Heyting algebras) and so had tampered sufficiently with the definition of a topological space to allow the result to go through without a choice axiom. Whether this is a 'good thing to do' really remains open to a certain extent. The logician's opening gambit could be that, yes, it is a good thing to do since it allows the development of a theory of spaces that is dependent on less axioms than the one proceeding it and so is, in an absolute sense, better. On the other hand we must satisfy ourselves that locales are capturing the correct notion of a space. This is a harder question since it is not precise. Locales are not a bad framework since a number of topological results have intuitively clear localic versions (e.g. Stone-Cech compactification) that reproduce the topological versions in the presence of the prime ideal theorem.

which you may see referred to as CWM, is still probably the best introductory account for category theory. This subject is now quite standard and so a number of texts are available. A good check as to whether a particular text really 'goes the distance' is to see whether an adjoint functor theorem (not just definition) is included.

by Oswald Wyler (Carnegie-Mellon University, USA)
Quasitopoi generalize topoi, a concept of major importance in the theory of Categoreis, and its applications to Logic and Computer Science. In recent years, quasitopoi have become increasingly important in the diverse areas of Mathematics such as General Topology and Fuzzy Set Theory. These Lecture Notes are the first comprehensive introduction to quasitopoi, and they can serve as a first introduction to topoi as well.

Higher topological Galois theory
Associating to any groupoid its category of representations (i.e. of presheaves), the 2-category of small groupoids can be seen as a full subcategory of topoi. Moreover, a topos X is Galois (i.e. is the category of representations of a small groupoid) if and only if it is locally connected and if any sheaf on X is locally constant. The classical topological Galois theory can then be stated as follows: The full inclusions of Galois topoi into locally simply connected topoi (i.e. locally connected topoi which admits a generating family on which any locally constant sheaf is constant) has a left adjoint: it is defined sending a topos X to the topos p X ) of locally constant sheaves on X If we think of homotopy types as some kind of -groupoids (whatever it means), then there should be some analog of this setting replacing groupoids by n -groupoids for n (and working with an adequate notion of n -topos). This has been done by B. Toen in some way for topoi which have the homotopy type of a CW-complexe. We shall give another proof of this which allows us to consider in a unified way an arbitrary

"Transformational Logics" in the title of my paper refers to the topos logics of functor categories. Functors F: C -> Sets from a small category C generalize the concept of group- or monoid actions, i.e in my applications I depart from small categories C and interpret functors F: C -> Sets music-theoretically as families of transformations on musical objects.

Theoretical Physics Group Research Interests
Staff Members: Professor Chris Isham Professor Chris Isham My primary research interests are: (i) all aspects of quantum gravity; (ii) the general problem of quantum theory, both technical and conceptual. My main current research programme is partly motivated by the 'problem of time' in quantum gravity which, in turn, is a special manifestation of the general questions in quantum gravity that have intrigued me for many years: (a) to what extent are standard space-time ideas (both mathematical and conceptual) applicable in quantum gravity; and (b) to what extent is the formalism (both mathematical and conceptual) of standard quantum theory applicable in quantum gravity. In particular, I have been developing a new approach to quantum gravity based on a quantum-logic extension of the consistent-histories version of quantum theory. This enables the standard ideas of quantum theory to be extended to situations where there is no normal notion of time, including the possibility that a variety of non-metrical aspects of space-time may also be subject to quantisation. I have become particularly interested in the use of generalised set theory ('topoi') in the context of the consistent histories programme where the internal logic of a topos seems to play an important role. I am also planning to use topos ideas in the development of new models for spacetime; in particular, there may be important links with topological quantum field theory, expecially the recent work involving ideas coming from the loopspace approach to the Ashtekar programme of canonical quantisation of gravity.

ISBN 3-7643-5731-2
Since the Greek antiquity it has been a tradition of European thinking to describe musical facts in a mathematical language. This formal apparatus has always mirrored the status quo of mathematical knowledge and the requirements of current sound technology. The Topos of Music is the upgraded and vastly deepened English extension of the seminal German . It reflects the dramatic progress of mathematical music theory and its operationalization by information technology since the publication of in 1990. The conceptual basis has been vastly generalized to topos-theoretic foundations, including a corresponding thoroughly geometric musical logic. The theoretical models and results now include topologies for rhythm, melody, and harmony, as well as a classification theory of musical objects that comprises the topos-theoretic concept framework. Classification also implies techniques of algebraic moduli theory. The classical models of modulation and counterpoint have been extended to exotic scales and counterpoint interval dichotomies. The probably most exciting new field of research deals with musical performance and its implementation on advanced object-oriented software environments. This subject not only uses extensively the existing mathematical music theory, it also opens the language to differential equations and tools of differential geometry, such as Lie derivatives. Mathematical performance theory is the key to inverse performance theory, an advanced new research field which deals with the calculation of varieties of parameters which give rise to a determined performance. This field uses techniques of algebraic geometry and statistics, approaches which have already produced significant results in the understanding of highest-ranked human performances.

The fundamental group of a (universal) branched covering in topos theory
Marta Bunge (10/10/01)
  • Background Branched coverings in topos theory [BN] [Fu] may be described (in several ways with varying degrees of abstraction) in terms of the more general notion of a complete spread [BF]. The goal of this talk is to establish a theorem relating the fundamental group of a (universal) branched covering of a topos with that of the (universal) covering of its unbranched part.
  • Motivation. The main motivation comes from theorem of R.H. Fox [Fox] (Section 7) for locally finite complexes, where, however, the fundamental group of a branched covering is directly given in terms of paths rather than by exploiting the Galois theory that is inherent in the given (branched and unbranched) coverings. I set out to prove one key ingredient of this theorem in the general context of an admissible KZ-doctrine in the sense of [BF2], satisfying an additional axiom of "interior" (or "density").
  • Definitions. Context: an admissible KZ-doctrine M satisfying an axiom of interior on a 2-category K.
