Topoi of Music

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This chapter is a conceptual synthesis of the previous achievements. We show that the overall structure of the category Glob of global compositions carries a Grothendieck pretopology via finite covering families. It is well known that such a pretopology generates a Grothendieck topology J and therefore a Lawvere{Tierny topology j on the presheaf topos Glob@. We discuss the associated instances, such as the subobject classifier sheaf Ω, and the subtopos Sh(J; Glob) of sheaves.
