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.

This book is an invitation to discover advanced topics in category theory through concrete, real-world examples. The tour takes place over seven sketches, such as databases, electric circuits, etc, with the exploration of a categorical structure.

These notes introduce the language of categories and present the basic notions of homological algebra, first from an elementary point of view, next with a more sophisticated approach, with the introduction of triangulated and derived categories.

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.
