**Categories and Homological Algebra**

by Pierre Schapira

**Publisher**: UPMC 2011**Number of pages**: 125

**Description**:

The aim of these notes is to introduce the reader to the language of categories and to present the basic notions of homological algebra, first from an elementary point of view, with the notion of derived functors, next with a more sophisticated approach, with the introduction of triangulated and derived categories.
