Category Theory for Scientists
by

Publisher: arXiv
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.

Book cover: Model Categories and Simplicial MethodsModel Categories and Simplicial Methods
by - 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.
