Category theory


I don’t know anything about category theory, but asides about it occur so often in my daily reading that I really should; moreover, since I frequently see it applied to formal syntax and network descriptions, two areas I am interested in, I am probably therefore missing some important tools from my toolbox if I don’t look it up.
