title = "Lax monoids, pseudo-operads, and convolution",

abstract = "The basic concept in this paper is that of lax monoid in a monoidal bicategory. Interpreted in the various duals of the monoidal bicategory of modules enriched over a good base monoidal category, this concept interprets as a weakened kind of monoidal category, weaker than promonoidal and weaker than multicategory. However, the extra freedom enables the construction of numerous convolution structures on categories of base-valued functors.",
