Considering an implicit reduction of abstraction by it´s mechanical analogs , for me , to study categories on the frame of simple RLC circuits is also an auxiliary interesting way to step in to applied category theory . I´ve been reading:

reproducing some Prof Baez tips:

"Any introduction to category theory contains these insights; two of my favorites are these free ones:

Tom Leinster, Basic Category Theory, Cambridge Studies in Advanced Mathematics, Vol. 143, Cambridge University Press, 2014. (An introduction.)

Emily Riehl, Category Theory in Context, Dover, New York, 2016. (More advanced.)

However, it's hard to get these insights without carefully studying several of these books and also talking to an expert several times a week for a long time. That's why I'm teaching this 6-month-long course!" https://forum.azimuthproject.org/discussion/comment/18302/#Comment_18302

"One of the main lessons of category theory is that whenever you think about some kind of mathematical gadget, you should also think about maps between gadgets of this kind. For example, when you think about sets you should also think about functions. When you think about vector spaces you should also think about linear maps. And so on." https://forum.azimuthproject.org/discussion/2095/lecture-26-chapter-2-monoidal-monotones/p1

Hey thanks a ton, https://arxiv.org/abs/1504.05625 was exactly what i was looking for.

John´s tips:

"Here are two important principles of category theory:

Every collection of things is eager to become the objects of a category.

and

Every map sending things of one kind to things of another kind is eager to become a functor."
