**An Introduction to Topos Physics**

by

**Marios Tsatsos**-

**arXiv**

The basic notion of how topoi can be utilized in physics is presented here. Topos and category theory serve as valuable tools which extend our ordinary set-theoretical conceptions, can give rise to new descriptions of quantum physics.
