A Basic Distributive Law
 JOURNAL OF PURE AND APPLIED ALGEBRA
, 2002
"... We pursue distributive laws between monads, particularly in the context of KZdoctrines, and show that a very basic distributive law has (constructively) completely distributive lattices for its algebras. Moreover, the resulting monad is shown to be also the double dualization monad (with respect ..."

We pursue distributive laws between monads, particularly in the context of KZdoctrines, and show that a very basic distributive law has (constructively) completely distributive lattices for its algebras. Moreover, the resulting monad is shown to be also the double dualization monad (with respect to the subobject classifier) on ordered sets.
Quotients of the multiplihedron as categorified associahedra
 Homotopy, Homology and Appl
, 2008
"... Abstract. We describe a new sequence of polytopes which characterize A ∞ maps from a topological monoid to an A ∞ space. Therefore each of these polytopes is a quotient of the corresponding multiplihedron. Our sequence of polytopes is demonstrated not to be combinatorially equivalent to the associah ..."

Abstract. We describe a new sequence of polytopes which characterize A ∞ maps from a topological monoid to an A ∞ space. Therefore each of these polytopes is a quotient of the corresponding multiplihedron. Our sequence of polytopes is demonstrated not to be combinatorially equivalent to the associahedra, as was previously assumed in both topological and categorical literature. They are given the new collective name composihedra. We point out how these polytopes are used to parameterize compositions in the formulation of the theories of enriched bicategories and pseudomonoids in a monoidal bicategory. We also present a simple algorithm for determining the extremal points in Euclidean space whose convex hull is the nth polytope in the sequence of

A dissertation is the capstone to a doctoral program, and the acknowledgements provide a useful place to thank the countless people who have helped out along the way, both personally and professionally. First, of course, I thank my advisor, John Baez. It is hard to imagine a better advisor, and no one deserves more credit for my mathematical and professional growth during this program. “Thanks ” does not seem sufficient, but it is all I have to give. Also deserving special mention is John’s collaborator, James Dolan. I am convinced there is no subject in mathematics for which Jim does not have some deep insight, and I thank him for sharing a few of these insights with me. Together, John and Jim are an unparalleled team: there are no two better people with whom to talk about mathematics, and no two people more awake to the joy of mathematics. I would also like to thank Geoffrey Dixon, Tevian Dray, Robert Helling, Corinne Manogue, Chris Rogers, Hisham Sati, James Stasheff, and Riccardo Nicoletti for helpful conversations and correspondence. I especially thank Urs Schreiber for many discussions of higher gauge theory and L∞superalgebras, smooth ∞groups, and supergeometry.
