Basic Concepts of Enriched Category Theory
by Max Kelly
Publisher: Cambridge University Press 2005
Number of pages: 143
Although numerous contributions from divers authors have brought enriched category theory to a developed state, there is still no connected account of the theory, or even of a substantial part of it. The present book is designed to supply the want in part, by giving a fairly complete treatment of the limited area to which the title refers. The basic concepts of category theory certainly include the notion of functor-category, of limit and colimit, of Kan extension, and of density; with their applications to completions, perhaps including those relative completions given by categories of algebras for limit-defined theories.

These notes were originally developed as lecture notes for a category theory course. They should be well-suited to anyone that wants to learn category theory from scratch and has a scientific mind. There is no need to know advanced mathematics.

These notes present the important notions from category theory. The intention is to provide a fairly good skill in manipulating with those concepts formally. This text introduces category theory in the calculational style of the proofs.

These notes introduce the language of categories and present the basic notions of homological algebra, first from an elementary point of view, next with a more sophisticated approach, with the introduction of triangulated and derived categories.

These notes provide a succinct, accessible introduction to some of the basic ideas of category theory and categorical logic. The main prerequisite is a basic familiarity with the elements of discrete mathematics: sets, relations and functions.
