I have two questions related to Selinger: A survey of graphical languages for monoidal categories.
1) On page 60 there is a summary of some monoidal categories with extra structure. Among them are the well known braided and symmetric versions. Due to the periodic table, these two monoidal categories stem from 3- resp. 4-categories. Can some of the other special monoidal categories also be deduced from certain higher categories?
2) There is another type of string diagrams not present on page 60. Namely you can do the following. Assume you have a string diagram of a monoidal category with no extra structure, i.e. a string diagram on a plane square. Bend such a square to a cylinder by identifying the left and right side of that square. The diagram is now "painted" on a cylinder und you can also compose cylinders (but only "vertically"). Does this correspond also to some extra structure on a monoidal category? In fact, this extra structure should somehow reduce the dimension of the monoidal category by one, because tensor expressions are cyclically isomorphic, e.g. the objects $A_1\otimes A_2\otimes A_3$, $A_2\otimes A_3\otimes A_1$, $A_3\otimes A_1\otimes A_2$ are coherently isomorphic. This corresponds to the top and bottom of the cylindrical diagrams being a circle.
