Model Categories and Simplicial Methods
by

Publisher: Northwestern University
Number of pages: 46

Description:
There are many ways to present model categories, each with a different point of view. Here we'd like to treat model categories as a way to build and control resolutions. We're going to emphasize the analog of projective resolutions, simply because these are the sort of resolutions most people see first.

Category theory is the kind of math that is particularly well suited for the minds of programmers. It deals with the kind of structure that makes programs composable. And I will argue strongly that composition is the essence of programming.
