**Dynamical Systems and Sheaves**

by D. I. Spivak, C. Vasilakopoulou, P. Schultz

**Publisher**: arXiv 2016**Number of pages**: 65

**Description**:

A categorical framework for modeling and analyzing systems in a broad sense is proposed. These systems should be thought of as 'machines' with inputs and outputs, carrying some sort of signal that occurs through some notion of time. Special cases include discrete, continuous, and hybrid dynamical systems. A central goal is to understand the systems that result from arbitrary interconnection of component subsystems.

The aim of this book is to develop the theory of Banach operator ideals and metric tensor products along categorical lines: these two classes of mathematical objects are endofunctors on the category Ban of all Banach spaces in a natural way.

Modules and morphisms among them subsume categories and functors and provide more general framework to explore the theory of structures. In this book we generalize the basic notions and results of category theory using this framework of modules.
