Model Categories and Simplicial Methods
by Paul Goerss, Kristen Schemmerhorn
Publisher: Northwestern University 2004
Number of pages: 46
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.

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.

A modern introduction to the theory of structures via the language of category theory, the emphasis is on concrete categories. The first five chapters present the basic theory, while the last two contain more recent research results.

This work gives an explanatory introduction to various definitions of higher-dimensional category. The emphasis is on ideas rather than formalities; the aim is to shed light on the formalities by emphasizing the intuitions that lead there.

Here is an introduction to category theory for the working computer scientist. It is a self-contained introduction to general category theory and the mathematical structures that constitute the theoretical background.
