Model Categories and Simplicial Methods
by Paul Goerss, Kristen Schemmerhorn

Publisher: Northwestern University 2004
Number of pages: 46

Description:
There are many ways to present model categories, each with a different point of view. Here we'd like to treat model categories as a way to build and control resolutions. We're going to emphasize the analog of projective resolutions, simply because these are the sort of resolutions most people see first.

Category Theory for ScientistsCategory Theory for Scientists
by David I. Spivak - arXiv
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.
