    Just a stub for the moment to try to introduce the notion of differential category due to Blute, Cockett and Seely.

    have polished it up a little.

    (Why the extra effort to hide the full names of the authors? Author identification is and will increasingly be an issue on the web. We do a favor to authors and their legacy if we name them as uniquely as possible.)

    Full names are often not (in fact ore often than not) given in the publication data so a copy and paste of a reference ends up without the full names.(Of course, ideally one can add in fuller form later on.) I do not understand why in papers the full name is usually not used.

    I wholeheartedly agree about ‘legacy’.

    In fact it is not extra work to hide those names, it is extra work for find full names. :-)

    Yes, we need not follow the weird traditions in print publication of tending to make following citations a detective story – such as not identifying authors completely, not giving titles (standard in parts of physics!) and (nowadays) not giving url-s. Let’s provide all this data!

    I agree … where we can find it!!!!! It took mequite some time to find Laurent Regier’s homepage. A google search gave lots of derivative pages, (Researchgate, etc.) but the Google weighting of his personal web page must have been low, at least that is what I presume.
