Category Theory for Scientists
by David I. Spivak
Publisher: arXiv 2013
Number of pages: 261
Description:
There are many books designed to introduce category theory to either a mathematical audience or a computer science audience. In this book, our audience is the broader scientific community. We attempt to show that category theory can be applied throughout the sciences as a framework for modeling phenomena and communicating results. In order to target the scientific audience, this book is example-based rather than proof-based.

Functors and Categories of Banach Spaces
by Peter W. Michor - Springer
The aim of this book is to develop the theory of Banach operator ideals and metric tensor products along categorical lines: these two classes of mathematical objects are endofunctors on the category Ban of all Banach spaces in a natural way.
