Tracelet Hopf algebras and decomposition spaces

Abstract

Tracelets are the intrinsic carriers of causal information in categorical rewriting systems. In this work, we assemble tracelets into a symmetric monoidal decomposition space, inducing a cocommutative Hopf algebra of tracelets. This Hopf algebra captures important combinatorial and algebraic aspects of rewriting theory, and is motivated by applications of its representation theory to stochastic rewriting systems such as chemical reaction networks.
