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.

This book is a textbook in basic category theory, written specifically to be read by researchers and students in computing science. We expound the constructions basic to category theory in the context of applications to computing science.
