If you have a question about this talk, please contact Fatma Faruq. Time for talk extended Categories are ubiquitous in mathematics and computer science. In the first part of the talk I’ll give the definition of a category and several examples: - the category of towns and routes
- the category of sets and functions
- the category of natural numbers and real matrices
- the category of Java types and unary methods
- the category of students, preordered by success.
In the second part we’ll look at three categorical concepts: isomorphism, initial object and terminal object. This talk is part of the SoCS PhD Research Training Sessions series. ## This talk is included in these lists:Note that ex-directory lists are not shown. |
