Structure: A Handout

I followed up a bit on my earlier post concerning the characterization of “structure.” Since I am now teaching a graduate seminar on structure in philosophy, mathematics, and physics, I actually read through a number of graduate textbooks in mathematics to figure out how it is defined in various branches of mathematics. And I produced a handout, summarizing the result. It can be found on the course website for the seminar. I would like to encourage readers to give their own definitions, or definitions they found elsewhere and found useful. The more the merrier!

    Maybe it’s just me, but the file seems corrupted when I try to load it.
