**Notes on Category Theory with examples from basic mathematics**

by Paolo Perrone

**Publisher**: arXiv 2021**Number of pages**: 181

**Description**:

These notes were originally developed as lecture notes for a category theory course. They should be well-suited to anyone that wants to learn category theory from scratch and has a scientific mind. There is no need to know advanced mathematics, nor any of the disciplines where category theory is traditionally applied.
