Call no.: QA169 .G736 2020Publication: Singapore : World Scientific, c2020Description: xi, 522 p. : illISBN: 9789811205101; 9811205108Subject(s): Categories (Mathematics)LOC classification: QA169 | .G736 2020
Contents:A review of basic category theory -- Introducing two-dimensional category theory -- Double categories -- Double adjunctions -- Double limits -- Weak and lax multiple categories -- Multiple adjunctions -- Monads and algebras for multiple categories.
Summary: "The study of higher dimensional categories has mostly been developed in the globular form of 2-categories, n-categories, omega-categories and their weak versions. Here we study a different form: double categories, n-tuple categories and multiple categories, with their weak and lax versions. We want to show the advantages of this form for the theory of adjunctions and limits. Furthermore, this form is much simpler in higher dimension, starting with dimension three where weak 3-categories (also called tricategories) are already quite complicated, much more than weak or lax triple categories. This book can be used as a textbook for graduate and postgraduate studies, and as a basis for research. Notions are presented in a 'concrete' way, with examples and exercises; the latter are endowed with a solution or hints. Part I, devoted to double categories, starts at basic category theory and is kept at a relatively simple level. Part II, on multiple categories, can be used independently by a reader acquainted with 2-dimensional categories"--
