Category Theory is a mathematical subject whose importance in several areas of computer science, most notably the semantics of programming languages and the design of programmes using abstract data types, is widely acknowledged.
This book introduces category theory at a level appropriate for computer scientists and provides practical examples in the context of programming language design. “Categories, Types and structures” provides a self-contained introduction to general category theory and explains the mathematical structures that have been the foundation of language design for the past two decades.
The authors observe that the language of categories could provide a powerful means of standardizing of methods and language, and offer examples ranging from the early dialects of LISP, to Edinburgh ML, to work in polymorphisms and modularity.
