**Category Theory for Scientists**

by David I. Spivak

**Publisher**: arXiv 2013**Number of pages**: 261

**Description**:

There are many books designed to introduce category theory to either a mathematical audience or a computer science audience. In this book, our audience is the broader scientific community. We attempt to show that category theory can be applied throughout the sciences as a framework for modeling phenomena and communicating results. In order to target the scientific audience, this book is example-based rather than proof-based.

**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.

**Model Categories and Simplicial Methods**

by

**Paul Goerss, Kristen Schemmerhorn**-

**Northwestern University**

There are many ways to present model categories, each with a different point of view. Here we would like to treat model categories as a way to build and control resolutions. We are going to emphasize the analog of projective resolutions.

**Category Theory Lecture Notes**

by

**Daniele Turi**-

**University of Edinburgh**

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.
