The book presents a selfcontained account of basic category theory, assuming as prior knowledge only the most elementary categorical concepts. It is designed to supply a connected account of the theory, or at least of a substantial part of it.

In this paper, we reveal the combinatorial nature of tensor calculus for strict tensor categories and show that there exists a monad which is described by the coarse-graining of graphs and characterizes the algebraic nature of tensor calculus.

This introduction to category theory is for readers with relatively little mathematical background. At its heart is the concept of a universal property, important throughout mathematics. For each new concept a generous supply of examples is provided.
