Description:
A modern introduction to the theory of structures via the language of category theory. Unique to this book is the emphasis on concrete categories. Also noteworthy is the systematic treatment of factorization structures, which gives a new, unifying perspective to earlier work and summarizes recent developments. Each categorical notion is accompanied by many examples, usually moving from special cases to more general cases. Comprises seven chapters; the first five present the basic theory, while the last two contain more recent research results in the realm of concrete categories, cartesian closed categories and quasitopoi. The prerequisite is an elementary knowledge of set theory. Contains exercises.

In this paper, we reveal the combinatorial nature of tensor calculus for strict tensor categories and show that there exists a monad which is described by the coarse-graining of graphs and characterizes the algebraic nature of tensor calculus.

These notes were written for a course in category theory. The course was designed to be self-contained, drawing most of the examples from category theory itself. It was intended for post-graduate students in theoretical computer science.

These notes present the important notions from category theory. The intention is to provide a fairly good skill in manipulating with those concepts formally. This text introduces category theory in the calculational style of the proofs.
