Sets for mathematics by
F. W Lawvere(
Book
)
15 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 419 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Advanced undergraduate or beginning graduate students need a unified foundation for their study of mathematics. For the first time in a text, this book uses categorical algebra to build such a foundation, starting from intuitive descriptions of mathematically and physically common phenomena and advancing to a precise specification of the nature of categories of sets."BOOK JACKET

Algebraic theories : a categorical introduction to general algebra by
Jiří Adámek(
Book
)
8 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Algebraic theories, introduced as a concept in the 1960s, have been a fundamental step towards a categorical view of general algebra. Moreover, they have proved very useful in various areas of mathematics and computer science. This carefully developed book gives a systematic introduction to algebra based on algebraic theories that is accessible to both graduate students and researchers. It will facilitate interactions of general algebra, category theory and computer science. A central concept is that of sifted colimits  that is, those commuting with finite products in sets. The authors prove the duality between algebraic categories and algebraic theories and discuss Morita equivalence between algebraic theories. They also pay special attention to onesorted algebraic theories and the corresponding concrete algebraic categories over sets, and to Ssorted algebraic theories, which are important in program semantics. The final chapter is devoted to finitary localizations of algebraic categories, a recent research area"Provided by publisher

Matemáticas conceptuales : una primera introducción a categorías by
F. W Lawvere(
Book
)
3 editions published between 1997 and 2002 in Spanish and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
En los últimos cincuenta años el uso de la noción de categoría ha conducido a una notable unificación y simplificación de las matemáticas. Escrito por dos participantes de este desarrollo, Matemáticas conceptuales es el primer libro que sirve a los siguientes dos propósitos: proveer al público en general, o al estudiante principiante, de una llave maestra para las matemáticas y dar una introducción a las categorías para los estudiosos de la ciencia de la computación, los lógicos, los físicos, los lingüistas, etc
