Preprints (comments are very welcome):
-Higher lattices, discrete two-dimensional holonomy and topological phases in (3+1) D with higher gauge symmetry. With Alex Bullivant, Marcos Calçada,
Zoltán Kádár and Paul Martin.
-Representations of the Loop Braid Group and Aharonov-Bohm like effects in discrete (3+1)-dimensional higher gauge theory. With Alex Bullivant and Paul Martin.
-On 2-Dimensional Homotopy Invariants of Complements of Knotted Surfaces. This is an archaic version of "The Fundamental Crossed Module of the Complement of a Knotted Surface, Trans AMS. 361 (2009), 4593-4630", using movies of knotted surfaces with bands and spanners rather than hyperbolic splittings of knotted surfaces for constructing a representation of the algebraic homotopy 2-type of the complement of a knotted surface. May still be of interest.
