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.
