**Categories and Homological Algebra**

by Pierre Schapira

**Publisher**: UPMC 2011**Number of pages**: 125

**Description**:

The aim of these notes is to introduce the reader to the language of categories and to present the basic notions of homological algebra, first from an elementary point of view, with the notion of derived functors, next with a more sophisticated approach, with the introduction of triangulated and derived categories.

Modules and morphisms among them subsume categories and functors and provide more general framework to explore the theory of structures. In this book we generalize the basic notions and results of category theory using this framework of modules.

**arXiv**

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.

**Combinatorics and Algebra of Tensor Calculus**

by

**Sen Hu, Xuexing Lu, Yu Ye**-

**arXiv**

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.
