Abstract:

An outgrowth of Algebraic Topology, Category Theory provides an unifying framework for many a priori unrelated structures in mathematics, from the highly abstract to the explicitly concrete. In this talk we will see the basics of category theory including examples in algebra, combinatorics and topology with applications to knot theory.
