Trigroups and Mtheory



Description: 
A trigroup is a tricategory with one object and all 1, 2 and 3morphisms invertible. Mtheory is a mysterious branch of physics believed to unify the five 10D string theories and 11D supergravity. Without assuming any knowledge of physics, we will describe how the mathematics of Mtheory leads naturally to a certain trigroup.
