Dear Jim,
1. R. Brown has a recent preprint on 'Moore n-paths' for a
topological space, and
their cubical structure
R. Brown, Moore hyperrectangles on a space form a strict cubical
omega-category,
Preprint (2009). Available at: arXiv:math/0909.2212.
2. The following preprint of mine gives two constructions (Moore and
standard)
for the singular cubical structure associated to a d-space, i.e. a
topological space
'with distinguished paths'.
(For a mere topological space, just say that all its paths are
distinguished.)
Thus, the 'Moore cubes' of a directed space give a strict symmetric
cubical category,
with concatenation laws in the various directions. On the other hand,
standard cubes
give a lax cubical structure, where concatenations are associative up
to invertible
reparametrisation but degeneracies are only lax-unital.
M. Grandis, A symmetric cubical category associated to a directed
space.
