Résumé :

Universal algebra uniformly captures various algebraic structures, by expressing them as equational theories or (abstract) clones. The ubiquity of algebraic structures in mathematics has also given rise to several variants of universal algebra, such as symmetric and non-symmetric operads, clubs, and monads. In this talk, I will present a unified framework for these cousins of universal algebra, or notions of algebraic theory. First I will explain how each notion of algebraic theory can be identified with a certain monoidal category, in such a way that theories correspond to monoids. Then I will introduce a categorical structure underlying the definition of models of theories. In specific examples, it often arises in the form of oplax action or enrichment. Finally I will uniformly characterize categories of models for various notions of algebraic theory, by a double-categorical universal property in the pseudo-double category of profunctors.
