Title: On the Composition of Classical Mechanical Systems
Abstract: Compositionality is a basic principle for understanding the physical world. The underlying idea is to study a system by studying the ways in which the components of the system compose to form the system. Category theory is an area in mathematics that is particularly well-suited for studying questions about compositionality. This talk will outline a way to use category theory to study classical mechanical systems from a compositional perspective.
