Category Theory for Programmers
by Bartosz Milewski
Publisher: unglue.it 2017
Number of pages: 510
Description:
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. I will illustrate all major concepts using computer code.

Category Theory for the Sciences
by David I. Spivak - The MIT Press
This book shows that category theory can be useful outside of mathematics as a flexible modeling language throughout the sciences. Written in an engaging and straightforward style, the book is rigorous but accessible to non-mathematicians.

Combinatorics and Algebra of Tensor Calculus
by Sen Hu, Xuexing Lu, Yu Ye - arXiv
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.
