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.
by Mikael Vejdemo-Johansson - University of St. Andrews
An introduction to category theory that ties into Haskell and functional programming as a source of applications. Topics: definition of categories, special objects and morphisms, functors, natural transformation, (co-)limits and special cases, etc.
