With a degree of exaggeration, modern physics is the physics of harmonic oscillators and two-by-two matrices. Indeed, they constitute the basic language for the symmetry problems in physics, and thus the main theme of this journal.

The first lecture describes the meaning of quantum complexity, the analogy between entropy and complexity, and the second law of complexity. Lecture two reviews the connection between the second law of complexity and the interior of black holes...

There is extensive network of analogies between physics, topology, logic and computation. In this paper we make these analogies precise using the concept of 'closed symmetric monoidal category'. We assume no prior knowledge of category theory.
