Higher Operads, Higher Categories
Abstract
Category theory has experienced a resurgence in popularity recently because of new links with topology and mathematical physics. This book provides a clearly written account of higher order category theory and presents operads and multicategories as a natural language for its study. Tom Leinster has included necessary background material and applications as well as appendices containing some of the more technical proofs that might have disrupted the flow of the text.
