**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.

There are many ways to present model categories, each with a different point of view. Here we would like to treat model categories as a way to build and control resolutions. We are going to emphasize the analog of projective resolutions.
