Description:

Researchers, teachers and graduate students in algebra and topology--familiar with the very basic notions of category theory--will welcome this categorical introduction to some of the key areas of modern mathematics, without being forced to study category theory. Rather, each of the eight largely independent chapters analyzes a particular subject, revealing the power and applicability of the categorical foundations in each case.
