Comparing homotopy models, Part II

Simona Paoli – 17 September 2003

Catn-groups and Tamsamani's weak n-groupoids have both been used to model homotopy types. However, a comparison between these two models has not yet been made. In this talk we are going to recall some background about the use of catn-groups and of Tamsamani's weak n-categories to model homotopy types, with the aim of discussing a possible approach for comparing the two models.
