weak omega-category

Weak ω\omega-categories are examples of higher categories, with essentially the same meaning as \infty-categories. The distinction between the terms “ω\omega-category” and “\infty-category” is mostly a matter of the preference of individual authors. One slight difference is that \infty-category usually seems to imply a “weak” notion, while in addition to weak ω\omega-categories there are also strict ones.
