First Scottish Category Theory Seminar: 27 November 2009

Category theory is a relatively new branch of mathematics which seeks to understand abstract mathematical structure. At its core, category theory contains a synthesis of algebraic, logical and geometric intuitions. This allows for both diverse applications and innovative insights in areas including pure mathematics, computer science, physics etc.

The Scottish Category Theory Seminar provides a forum for discussion of all aspects of category, be they straight category theory or applications to other scientific fields. Our first meeting took place on Friday November 27 at the University of Glasgow. The schedule was
