In science:

Given linkings f : S → T and g : T → U , since the definition of turbo cut elimination is precisely path composition, the composite f ; g : S → U corresponds to the normal form of the one-sided linking f ∪ g , the disjoint union of f and g , on the cut sequent S ∗ , T T ∗ , U .
Simple free star-autonomous categories and full coherence
By the correspondence between (turbo) cut elimination of one-sided linkings and path composition of two-sided linkings, we obtain Theorem 2 (compositionality of two-sided nets).
Simple free star-autonomous categories and full coherence
Section 7 continues the GoI theme, and shows how composition (turbo cut elimination) of MALL proof nets [HG03, HG05] can be viewed as occurring in a ‘laminated’ variant of GoI(Setp).
Simple multiplicative proof nets with units
Turbo cut elimination is the very same path composition, hence there is a forgetful (faithful) functor from the category N of MLL proof nets to GoI(Setp), extracting the leaves from a formula.

Some notable examples in “modern coding” include Turbo codes and sparse graph codes (e.g., LDPC codes and Fountain codes, cf. , , ).
