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.

Abstract and Concrete Categories: The Joy of Cats
by Jiri Adamek, Horst Herrlich, George Strecker - John Wiley & Sons
A modern introduction to the theory of structures via the language of category theory, the emphasis is on concrete categories. The first five chapters present the basic theory, while the last two contain more recent research results.
