Composition is at the very root of category theory — it’s part of the definition of the category itself. And I will argue strongly that composition is the essence of programming.

Group theory has many applications in physics and chemistry, and is potentially applicable in any situation characterized by symmetry. Additionally, Introduction to Category Theory aims at beginning graduate students and is designed to function both as a classroom text, a text for small groups, and even a text for solo study.
