Temporal Type Theory: A Topos-Theoretic Approach to Systems and Behavior (Progress in Computer Science and Applied Logic)

Buy
This innovative monograph explores a new mathematical formalism in higher-order temporal logic for proving properties about the behavior of systems. Developed by the authors, the goal of this novel approach is to explain what occurs when multiple, distinct system components interact by using a category-theoretic description of behavior types based on sheaves. The authors demonstrate how to analyze the behaviors of elements in continuous and discrete dynamical systems so that each can be translated and compared to one another. Their temporal logic is also flexible enough that it can serve as a framework for other logics that work with similar models. 

The book begins with a discussion of behavior types, interval domains, and translation invariance, which serves as the groundwork for temporal type theory. From there, the authors lay out the logical preliminaries they need for their temporal modalities and explain the soundness of those logical semantics. These results are then applied to hybrid dynamical systems, differential equations, and labeled transition systems. A case study involving aircraft separation within the National Airspace System is provided to illustrate temporal type theory in action.  

Researchers in computer science, logic, and mathematics interested in topos-theoretic and category-theory-friendly approaches to system behavior will find this monograph to be an important resource.  It can also serve as a supplemental text for a specialized graduate topics course.

The Fundamental Constants: A Mystery of Physics
The Fundamental Constants: A Mystery of Physics
The speed of light, the fine structure constant, and Newton's constant of gravity -- these are just three among the many physical constants that define our picture of the world. Where do they come from? Are they constant in time and across space? In this book, physicist and author Harald Fritzsch invites the reader to explore the mystery of the...
Solving Fermi's Paradox (Cambridge Astrobiology)
Solving Fermi's Paradox (Cambridge Astrobiology)
The search for extra-terrestrial intelligence (SETI) has for sixty years attempted to solve Fermi's paradox: if intelligent life is relatively common in the universe, where is everybody? Examining SETI through this lens, this volume summarises current thinking on the prevalence of intelligent life in the universe, and discusses sixty-six...

Spacetime, Geometry and Gravitation (Progress in Mathematical Physics)
Spacetime, Geometry and Gravitation (Progress in Mathematical Physics)

Teaching Einstein’s general relativity at introductory level poses problems because students cannot begin to appreciate the basics of the theory unless they learn a sufficient amount of Riemannian geometry. Most elementary books take the easy course of telling the students a few working rules stripping the mathematical details to a minimum...

Higher Categories and Homotopical Algebra (Cambridge Studies in Advanced Mathematics)
This book provides an introduction to modern homotopy theory through the lens of higher categories after Joyal and Lurie, giving access to methods used at the forefront of research in algebraic topology and algebraic geometry in the twenty-first century. The text starts from scratch - revisiting results from classical homotopy theory such as...
Composing Software: An Exploration of Functional Programming and Object Composition in JavaScript
Composing Software: An Exploration of Functional Programming and Object Composition in JavaScript
All software design is composition: the act of breaking complex problems down into smaller problems and composing those solutions. Most developers have a limited understanding of compositional techniques. It's time for that to change.In "Composing Software", Eric Elliott shares the fundamentals of composition, including both...
