Physics, Topology, Logic and Computation:

By A Rosetta Stone, John C. Baez and Mike Stay

Abstract

Category theory is a very general formalism, but there is a certain special way that physicists use categories which turns out to have close analogues in topology, logic and computation. A category has objects and morphisms, which represent things and ways to go between things.
