Copyright: The Editors of Theory and Applications of Categories
THEORY AND APPLICATIONS OF CATEGORIES (ISSN 1201-561X) will disseminate
articles that significantly advance the study of categorical algebra or
methods, or that make significant new contributions to mathematical
science using categorical methods. The scope of the journal includes:
all areas of pure category theory, including higher dimensional categories;
applications of category theory to algebra, geometry and topology and
other areas of mathematics; applications of category theory to computer
science, physics and other mathematical sciences; contributions to
scientific knowledge that make use of categorical methods.
Articles appearing in the journal have been carefully and critically
refereed under the responsibility of members of the Editorial Board.
Only papers judged to be both significant and excellent are accepted for
publication.
The method of distribution of the journal is via the Internet tools
WWW/gopher/ftp. The journal is archived electronically and in
printed paper format.
