Homotopy double groupoid of a Hausdorff space

Let $X$ be a Hausdorff space. Also consider the HDA concept of a double groupoid (http://planetmath.org/HigherDimensionalAlgebraHDA), and how it can be completely specified for a Hausdorff space, $X$. Thus, in ref. [BHKP] Brown et al. associated to $X$ a double groupoid, $\boldsymbol{\rho}^{\square}_{2}(X)$ , called the homotopy double groupoid of X which is completely defined by the data specified in Definitions 0.1 to 0.3 in this entry and related objects.

Generally, the geometry of squares and their compositions leads to a common representation of a double groupoid in the following form:

 $\mathsf{D}=\vbox{\hbox{}}$ (0.1)
