Epi, extremal mono and extremal epi, mono categories. The Joy of Cats 1 G. Is Mac Lane still the best place to start? The idea of a derived generation makes my cringe a little Categort a pity, that I just missed the chance to meet the author in person. Sign up using Facebook.

Home Questions Tags Users Unanswered. As Mike Shulman noted, 0 is rather idiosyncratic. Algebraic categories and algebraic functors. The finished text did not disappoint. By using our site, you acknowledge that you have read and understand our Cookie PolicyPrivacy Policyand our Terms of Service.

Generating, extremal mono and extremal generating, mono factorizations. Category Theory in Context by Emily Riehl. Lurie’s “Higher Topos Theory” http: Abstract and concrete category theory freely avaible catetory at this site ” http: It’s comprehensive, incredibly clear and amazingly rich in examples, including many you’ve probably never considered. Category theory Peculiar because it has very low prerequisites and it’s rich of examples too.

Anyway there isn’t a best book to learn basic category theory, any person could find a book better than another one, so I suggest you to take a look a some of these books, then choose which one is the best for you: The implicit assumption is that the student has a budget of zero dollars.


Best of all, it’s much cheaper then MacLane! Anyway there isn’t a best book to learn basic category theory, any person could find a book better than another one, so I suggest you to take a look a some of these books, then choose which one is the best for you:.

Inverse and direct limits. Student has knowledge of 1-category theory but not simplicial sets and wishes to get an in depth stdecker of infinity-category theory, allowing an ‘ample’ amount strceker time. My full review can be found here. Functors that preserve and reflect limits.

Of course, there is no canonical way to approach learning higher category theory, so adjust the readings as needed. Let’s please stay on topic here. John Baez, in his not so weekly blog, inspiring. Repeating what Giorgio Mossa wrote, 0 has an abundant number of examples from topology, algebra, and theoretical computer science. The paper can be obtained at– http: If not, what’s the most efficient path through the classical core material to a modern perspective?

It’s a remarkable book and I think it’s going to replace MacLane very quickly once it’s known to most experts. The fact that the book appears in a 3rd edition proves that the authors achieved their goals.

Constant morphisms, zero morphisms, and pointed categories. If so, via what route? For further roadmaps on learning higher category theory, look at this nForum discussion on reading Lurie’s Higher Topos Theory http: Categories and Structures F. My opinion is that you should absolutely learn some 1-category theory first.


Category Theory

The more advanced book ” Abstract and Concrete Categories “, which the authors of this book wrote together with Jiri Adamek, is also available from Heldermann Verlag as a free electronic publication. I doubt that someone could learn higher category theory and more herrlicb general higher dimensional algebra without first studying a little of category theory, mostly because the definition given in such context use a lot of category theoretic machinery.

It is really an excellent exposition with some nice perspectives on the concepts, supported by plenty of examples. Homotopy Theory of Higher Categories http: It’s developed over the last several years from courses in category theory that Riehl has taught at Harvard and John Hopkins University to strong undergraduates and first year graduate students.

You may find this helpful: Student has no knowledge of 1-category theory or simplicial sets and wishes to get the flavor of infinity-category theory, without getting bogged down by technical details, in as short a time as can be reasonably expected. I recommend for a first reading on category theory:
