# Asymptotic Abelianness and Braided Tensor $C^*$-Categories

September 19, 2002

By introducing the concepts of asymptopia and bi-asymptopia, we show how braided tensor $C^*$-categories arise in a natural way. This generalizes constructions in algebraic quantum field theory by replacing local commutativity by suitable forms of asymptotic Abelianness.
