With one exception, these papers are original and fully
refereed research articles on various applications of
Category Theory to Algebraic Topology, Logic and Computer
Science. The exception is an outstanding and lengthy survey
paper by Joyal/Street (80 pp) on a growing subject: it gives
an account of classical Tannaka duality in such a way as to
be accessible to the general mathematical reader, and to
provide a key for entry to more recent developments and
quantum groups. No expertise in either representation theory
or category theory is assumed. Topics such as the Fourier
cotransform, Tannaka duality for homogeneous spaces, braided
tensor categories, Yang-Baxter operators, Knot invariants
and quantum groups are introduced and studies.
