“Universal” should include fullest Clifford Algebras (not only “Geometric” over reals) and related combinatorial “calculus” like:

Would also like to understand via Category Theory and include essence of VA “Variational Analysis” (Rockafellar and Wets) and RV “Random Variation” (Patrick Muldowney) for path based integrals used in both stochastic finance with Loeb spaces and in Feynman QM (General Integral better conceptually than Lebesgue and usual measure theory).

But first need to understand NFM (and probably lots of Category Theory and Algebra before able to tackle any of above).

Hopefully will get there by parallel study of first Lawvere and Schaunel’s recommended initial follow ons from CM “Conceptual Mathematics” together with Walter Noll on FDS “Finite Dimensional Spaces” and perhaps Steve Awodey CT “Category Theory”, Freyd and Scedrov CA “Categories, Allegories”, Paolo Aluffi AC0 “Algebra Chapter 0”.

Hopefully avoid getting distracted or bogged down by Taylor PFM “Practical Foundations of Mathematics” or HTT “Homotopy Type Theory”.

The series from CM seems to include enough Topos theory and Synthetic Differential Geometry to have a useful perspective so better start there before attempting anything beyond LAGA and VAGC below.

Invariant, or coordinate-free methods provide a natural framework for many geometric questions. Invariant Methods in Discrete andComputational Geometry provides a basic introduction to several aspects of invariant theory, including the supersymmetric algebra, the Grassmann-Cayler algebra, and Chow forms. It also presents a number of current research papers on invariant theory and its applications to problems in geometry, such as automated theorem proving and computer vision.

Audience: Researchers studying mathematics, computers and robotics.
