Abstract or Additional Information
In these talks I will explain how $(\infty,n)$-categories can be modeled by $\Theta_n$-spaces. The topics I'm going to cover are roughly:
1. Segal's delooping machine and complete Segal spaces.
2. Strict $n$-categories and the category $\Theta_n$.
3. $\Theta_n$-spaces as $(\infty,n)$-categories.
