    I have created stratified space in order to collect some references

    I see that links to the fundamental category with duals of a stratified space. That old Cafe discussion led to a paper by Woolf, as John mentioned here. It’s Transversal homotopy theory.

    Did anything come of that?

    I added excellent notes

    • M. Banagl, Topological invariants of stratified spaces, Springer Monographs in Math. 2000.

    As a graduate student in Wisconsin, I was among the guinea pigs who listened an excellent and clear exposition by the author of parts of the notes (directed toward the intersection cohomology) , before they were finalized.

    @David - I’m not sure, but Lurie has some material in appendix A to Higher Algebra on what he calls the exit-path \infty-category. I think this is a generalisation of the 2-category described by Treumann in arXiv:0708.0659 and the results therein. Essentially representations of the exit path \infty-category in Gpd\infty Gpd are the same as constructible \infty-sheaves, generalising the case of representations of the fundamental \infty-groupoid being the same as locally constant \infty-sheaves. This is of course a massive generalisation of the old result that representations of the fundamental groupoid in SetSet give covering spaces.

    I should say that ’constructible’ just means ’locally constant on each stratum’. The 1-stack of perverse sheaves (a subcategory of the derived category of coherent sheaves) is an example of a constructible 1-stack.

    There is a van Kampen theorem for the exit-path \infty-category, which I like to think of as the ultimate version of Ronnie Brown’s work on van Kampen-type results on filtered spaces (which give rise to a natural stratification).

    So the Baez-Dolan approach is different. Paths cross strata, not just exit them. Woolf had already done something along the lines of Treumann.

    this edit adds a basic definition of stratified spaces as decompositions of spaces into strata, and then discusses how this definition links to other simple definitions (poset-stratifications, filtrations).

    it also explains how to define the category of stratifications, and how this category is related to the category of posets by functors in both directions.

    it adds a discussion of an “nPOV” on stratifications, explaining the analogy sets:spaces::posets:stratifications. It mentions two constructions of fundamental categories of stratifications.

    some technicalities (e.g. working with convenient topological spaces for some of the definitions) have been omitted. typos and mistakes have been left to the reader to find.
