Assuming a minimum of mathematical preparation, Basic Category Theory for Computer Scientists provides a straightforward presentation of the basic constructions and terminology of category theory, including limits, functors, natural transformations, adjoints, and cartesian closed categories. Four case studies illustrate applications of category Cited by: Aug 28, · Basic Category Theory for Computer Scientists (Foundations of Computing) - Kindle edition by Benjamin C. Pierce.

Basic Category Theory for Computer Scientists provides a straightforward presentation of the basic constructions and terminology of category theory, including limits, functors, natural transformations, adjoints, and cartesian closed categories. Category theory is a branch of pure mathematics that is becoming an increasingly important tool in theoretical computer science, especially in 3/5(5). Category theory provides some limited guidance about that. Conclusion 1: programmers need to learn functional programming and not category theory. The special knowledge required in functional programming (e.g., how to implement and use a free applicative functor in your programming language) is not going to be covered by any book in category.
Interactive Web page which generates examples of categorical constructions in the category of finite sets. Category Theory for the Sciences, an instruction on category theory as a tool throughout the sciences. Category Theory for Programmers A book in blog form explaining category theory for computer programmers. Introduction to category theory. Good books and lecture notes about category theory. Ask Question Which is a really wonderful book for learning some category theory if you don't have the background to understand the heavy duty algebraic topology etc examples that enter into some $\begingroup$ really engaging video lectures with a computer programming. Oct 28, · Category Theory for Programmers book. Read 10 reviews from the world's largest community for readers. Although I like programming and category theory, this book didn't do it for me. Too informal for a subject that needs formality. Since my academic background is in Computer Science, I found this book very helpful in understand advanced /5. There is no "one size fits all" answer to this question. It strongly depends on the context of the reader. That said, I can offer several suggestions for different demographics. If you are starting from zero and have little background with math.
Category Theory and Computer Programming. Computational Category Theory. Post date: 12 Dec This book is a bridge-building exercise between category theory and computer programming. It attempts at connecting the abstract mathematics with concrete programs using ML, a functional programming language. This book is a textbook in basic category theory, written speciﬂcally to be read by researchers and students in computing science. We expound the con-structions we feel are basic to category theory in the context of examples and applications to computing science. Some categorical ideas and constructions.
