Higher Operads, Higher Categories

Publisher: arXiv 2003
Number of pages: 410
Higher-dimensional category theory is the study of n-categories, operads, braided monoidal categories, and other such exotic structures. It draws its inspiration from areas as diverse as topology, quantum algebra, mathematical physics, logic, and theoretical computer science. This is the first book on the subject and lays its foundations.

This book develops abstract homotopy theory from the categorical perspective with a particular focus on examples. Emily Riehl discusses two competing perspectives by which one typically first encounters homotopy (co)limits ...

These notes were written for a course in category theory. The course was designed to be self-contained, drawing most of the examples from category theory itself. It was intended for post-graduate students in theoretical computer science.

The aim of this book is to develop the theory of Banach operator ideals and metric tensor products along categorical lines: these two classes of mathematical objects are endofunctors on the category Ban of all Banach spaces in a natural way.
