**Publisher**: Springer-Verlag 2005**ISBN/ASIN**: 0387961151**ISBN-13**: 9780387961156**Number of pages**: 302

**Description**:

As its title suggests, this book is an introduction to three ideas and the connections between them. Chapter 1 is an introduction to category theory which develops the basic constructions in categories needed for the rest of the book. Chapters 2, 3 and 4 introduce each of the three topics of the title and develop them independently up to a certain point. We assume that the reader is familiar with concepts typically developed in first-year graduate courses, such as group, ring, topological space, and so on.

**Categories and Modules**

by

**Takahiro Kato**-

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.
