A -category , , is defined as a (small) 2-category for which the following conditions hold:

  1. for each pair of -arrows the space is a complex Banach space.
  2. there is an anti-linear involution `' acting on -arrows, that is,

, , with and being -arrows;

  1. the Banach norm is sub-multiplicative (that is,

, when the composition is defined, and satisfies the -condition:

  1. for any 2-arrow , is a positive element in

, (denoted also as ).

Note: The set of -arrows is a commutative monoid, with the identity map assigning to each object a -arrow such that
