If you have a question about this talk, please contact Paul Taylor. I will present a new proof assistant, Globular, which allows the formalization of compositional proofs in higher category theory. The interface is geometrical, with proofs depicted as string diagrams, and allowing direct click-and-drag manipulation. I will show how to build a simple proof from scratch, and present some sophisticated formalized proofs from topology and algebra. I will also give some details of the theoretical basis. This talk will be accessible, and will not require any previous knowledge of category theory. This talk is part of the Theoretical computer science seminar series. ## This talk is included in these lists:- Computer Science Departmental Series
