    What's new

  • Limits, colimits, and all the fundamental constructions of category theory can be described as adjoints.

    Category Theory

  • Not only does the existence of adjoints to given functors permit definitions of abstract categories (and presumably those which are defined by such means have a privileged status) but as we mentioned earlier, many important theorems and even theories in various fields can be seen as equivalent to the existence of specific functors between particular categories.

    Category Theory

  • Furthermore, and this is a key element, the standard universal and existential quantifiers can be shown to be arising as adjoints to the operation of substitution.

    Category Theory

  • Firstly, adjoints are unique up to isomorphism; that is any two left adjoints F and F 'of a functor G are naturally isomorphic.

    Category Theory

  • ISE (ingénieurs statisticiens économistes), la filière ITS (ingénieurs des travaux statistiques), la filière AD (adjoints techniques) et la filière AT

    The Inside Story of the Peace Conference

  • Deputy-mayors, adjoints, were coming and going, and liveried officials bustled about, glancing at me from time to time, but without any impertinent curiosity.
