Publisher: viXra.org
Number of pages: 323

Description:
Modules (also known as profunctors or distributors) and morphisms among them subsume categories and functors and provide more general and abstract framework to explore the theory of structures. In this book we generalize and redevelop the basic notions and results of category theory using this framework of modules.

by - Springer
The aim of this book is to develop the theory of Banach operator ideals and metric tensor products along categorical lines: these two classes of mathematical objects are endofunctors on the category Ban of all Banach spaces in a natural way.
