Category theory is the kind of math that is particularly well suited for the minds of programmers. It deals with the kind of structure that makes programs composable. And I will argue strongly that composition is the essence of programming.

This volume concentrates a) on the concept of 'triple' or standard construction with special reference to the associated 'algebras', and b) on homology theories in general categories, based upon triples and simplicial methods.

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.
