In science:

Equivalence classes yield the free linearly distributive category and free star-autonomous category (linearly distributive category with negation) generated by a polygraph (e.g., by a category), for full coherence.
Simple free star-autonomous categories and full coherence
We define a notion of cofibration among ∞-categories and show that the cofibrant ob jects are exactly the free ones, that is those generated by polygraphs.
Cofibrant complexes are free
S is a polygraph, generating a free ∞-category S ∗ ; • the morphism p : S ∗ → C is a trivial fibration (see 3.1).
Cofibrant complexes are free
In other words, given a polygraph S and a trivial fibration p : D → C, any morphism f : S ∗ → C lifts to a morphism g : S ∗ → C (figure 1).
Cofibrant complexes are free
The purpose of the present work is to prove the converse, namely that all cofibrant ∞-categories are freely generated by polygraphs, thus establishing a simple, abstract characterization of the free ob jects, otherwise defined by a rather complex inductive construction.
Cofibrant complexes are free
Now the same ideas carry into higher dimensions, with ∞-categories instead of monoids and polygraphs instead of generating sets.
Cofibrant complexes are free
Moreover the free complex generated by a globular set is the same as the free complex generated by the corresponding polygraph.
Cofibrant complexes are free
Likewise, in will denote a morphism of globular sets, polygraphs, or complexes according to the context.
Cofibrant complexes are free
Thus T extends to an n-polygraph and the free n−1-complex T ∗ extends to a free n-complex.
Cofibrant complexes are free
Thus we get an inclusion monomorphism of n-polygraphs ι : U → S, generating a monomorphism of n-complexes ι∗ : U ∗ → S ∗ .

A diagrammatic calculus of n-term syllogisms
In section 4, we will point out the existing connections with the theory of rewriting systems, by approaching them through polygraphs, mainly referring to .
A diagrammatic calculus of n-term syllogisms
For every natural number n, n-polygraphs and more in general ∞-polygraphs were introduced in .
A diagrammatic calculus of n-term syllogisms
Existing connections between n-polygraphs, for n = 2, 3 in particular, and rewriting systems were pointed out in and, for example, so that later on we will feel free to extend to them the previously introduced terminology.
A diagrammatic calculus of n-term syllogisms
Now, the idea is that of looking at the calculus of n-term syllogisms as to a rewriting system, or better as to a specific 2-polygraph.
