I work in directed homotopy theory for concurrency theory. Since the expression "directed homotopy theory" has unfortunately quite distinct meanings, there seems to be confusion in some people's minds. The purpose is to understand the homotopical properties of directed spaces, whatever the definition of a directed space is. There is no consensus indeed on what a directed space is and, by now, there is no unified framework. I am not currently working on higher category theory, and in particular not on homotopy type theory (HoTT). I did use the formalisms of strict globular and strict cubical higher dimensional categories more than twenty years ago. I introduced the formalisms of flow and of multipointed d-space precisely to do what I wanted to do by getting rid of the cumbersome framework of strict higher dimensional categories (CV).

Quelques journaux

I do not work in any way for Elsevier, Springer, John Wiley & Sons and Informa. In particular, this means that I do not attend any conference where people are forced to publish in such a journal. I do not write any review for a paper submitted to these journals. I do not submit any paper in these journals either. Authors do not have to pay to obtain an open access of their work. The scientific papers are financed by our salaries, and therefore by the taxpayers who therefore must have access to the papers at a reasonable cost. I also signed the petition The Cost of Knowledge against Elsevier.
