In mathematics, specifically in category theory and algebraic topology, the **Baez–Dolan stabilization hypothesis**, proposed in (Baez & Dolan 1995), states that suspension of a weak *n*-category has no more essential effect after *n* + 2 times.^{[1]} Precisely, it states that the suspension functor is an equivalence for .^{[2]}
