Abstract

It has been said that the notion of an adjoint is the pinnacle notion in category theory; that it is the culmination and perhaps even the raison d’être of all of the theory that comes before it. It has also been said that adjoints are both unifying and ubiquitious in mathematics and have a strong and powerful presence in other disciplines as well, such as computer science.
