Category Theory for Scientists
by David I. Spivak
Publisher: arXiv 2013
Number of pages: 261
There are many books designed to introduce category theory to either a mathematical audience or a computer science audience. In this book, our audience is the broader scientific community. 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.

Jacob Lurie presents the foundations of higher category theory, using the language of weak Kan complexes, and shows how existing theorems in algebraic topology can be reformulated and generalized in the theory's new language.

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 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 categorical framework for modeling and analyzing systems in a broad sense is proposed. These systems should be thought of as 'machines' with inputs and outputs, carrying some sort of signal that occurs through some notion of time.
