Title: A Structural Approach to Classical Mechanics

Abstract: A structural approach to the study of classical mechanics clarifies the physical heuristics that physicists use in constructing mathematical models of classical mechanical systems. The focus of our current program is to develop a category theoretic framework that captures certain compositional features of classical mechanics. The framework is both flexible enough to support the description of a wide variety of systems and rigid enough to uniquely determine the physicists’ models.
