Description:
Higher-dimensional category theory is the study of n-categories, operads, braided monoidal categories, and other such exotic structures. It draws its inspiration from areas as diverse as topology, quantum algebra, mathematical physics, logic, and theoretical computer science. This is the first book on the subject and lays its foundations.

Book cover: Categories and ModulesCategories and Modules
by - viXra.org
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.
