**Model Categories and Simplicial Methods**

by Paul Goerss, Kristen Schemmerhorn

**Publisher**: Northwestern University 2004**Number of pages**: 46

**Description**:

There are many ways to present model categories, each with a different point of view. Here we'd like to treat model categories as a way to build and control resolutions. We're going to emphasize the analog of projective resolutions, simply because these are the sort of resolutions most people see first.

**Category Theory for Scientists**

by

**David I. Spivak**-

**arXiv**

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.
