A categorical framework for modeling and analyzing systems in a broad sense is proposed. These systems should be thought of as 'machines' with inputs and outputs, carrying some sort of signal that occurs through some notion of time. Special cases include discrete, continuous, and hybrid dynamical systems. A central goal is to understand the systems that result from arbitrary interconnection of component subsystems.

This work gives an explanatory introduction to various definitions of higher-dimensional category. The emphasis is on ideas rather than formalities; the aim is to shed light on the formalities by emphasizing the intuitions that lead there.

This introduction to category theory is for readers with relatively little mathematical background. At its heart is the concept of a universal property, important throughout mathematics. For each new concept a generous supply of examples is provided.

A modern introduction to the theory of structures via the language of category theory, the emphasis is on concrete categories. The first five chapters present the basic theory, while the last two contain more recent research results.

This volume concentrates a) on the concept of 'triple' or standard construction with special reference to the associated 'algebras', and b) on homology theories in general categories, based upon triples and simplicial methods.
