Basic Category Theory
by Tom Leinster
Publisher: arXiv 2016
Number of pages: 191
This short introduction to category theory is for readers with relatively little mathematical background. At its heart is the concept of a universal property, important throughout mathematics. For each new categorical concept, a generous supply of examples is provided, taken from different parts of mathematics.

A self-contained account of the elementary theory of groupoids and some of its uses in group theory and topology. Category theory appears as a secondary topic whenever it is relevant to the main issue, and its treatment is by no means systematic.

This book is an invitation to discover advanced topics in category theory through concrete, real-world examples. The tour takes place over seven sketches, such as databases, electric circuits, etc, with the exploration of a categorical structure.
