Databases from a category-theoretic perspective


Category theory arose in the 1940s as a way provide a single framework in which many different mathematical disciplines can be represented. A category roughly consists of objects and relationships between them, and a functor is a way of relating one category to another. This approach is both flexible and powerful, and is ubiquitous in mathematical research today. One might say that a category theorist studies the structure of mathematics.
