# nLab weak omega-category

Weak $\omega$-categories are examples of higher categories, with essentially the same meaning as $\infty$-categories. The distinction between the terms ”$\omega$-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 $\omega$-categories there are also strict ones.
