Description: Algebra is considered to be some sort of “eyeglasses” through which one can see clearly what is otherwise impossible or difficult to see. Algebraic structures are permeating all of Mathematics, they are also absolutely essential to modern Physics, and become increasingly important in all areas of Applications of Mathematics. My aim is provide an exciting modern introduction into the subject, demonstrating all the essential algebraic structures, unified by a single viewpoint provided by the concepts of a category and of a functor.
