If you have a question about this talk, please contact Paul Levy. [Note unusual date and location.] Abstract guardedness is a unifying mechanism allowing for identification of the equational theory of partial trace operators in (symmetric) monoidal categories in a compositional way. Examples include classical total iteration and recursion, partial recursion in categories of pre-domains and complete metric spaces, partial iteration in categories for modeling concurent processes and hybrid programs, as well as traces of infinite-dimentional Hilbert spaces. A salient feature of guarded traces is that they can be thought of both in a structural and in a geometric way. A precise connection between these two complementing views amounts to formulating and proving a suitable coherence theorem, which cannot really be done on the level of guarded traced monoidal categories. Here, I present an approach to coherence based on guarded traced colored props, providing a necessary level of abstraction and a more direct connection to conventional graphical languages of string diagrams. This is a joint work (in progress) with Lutz Schröder and Paul Levy.
