A theory of decorated cospans

A bicategory of decorated cospans

We show that decorated cospans are morphisms in a symmetric monoidal bicategory when has finite colimits.We illustrate our construction with examples from electrical engineering and the theory of chemical reaction networks.Decorated cospans are morphisms in a symmetric monoidal bicategory.We show that decorated cospans are morphisms in a symmetric monoidal bicategory when has finite colimits.We illustrate our construction with examples from electrical engineering and the theory of chemical reaction networks.Decorated cospans are morphisms in a symmetric monoidal bicategory.We show that decorated cospans are morphisms in a symmetric monoidal bicategory when has finite colimits.We illustrate our construction with examples from electrical engineering and the theory of chemical reaction networks.Decorated cospans are morphisms in a symmetric monoidal bicategory.We show that decorated cospans are morphisms in a symmetric monoidal bicategory when has finite colimits.We illustrate our construction with examples from electrical engineering and the theory of chemical reaction networks.
