  • This paper applies operads and functorial semantics to address the problem of failure diagnosis in complex systems. We start with a concrete example, developing a hierarchical interaction model for the Length Scale Interferometer, a high-precision measurement system operated by the US National Institute of Standards and Technology. The model is expressed in terms of combinatorial/diagrammatic structures called port-graphs, and we explain how to extract an operad LSI from a collection of these… CONTINUE READING
