MATH Semineri: “Monads and their Algebras”, Aziz Kharoof, 13:30 26 Eylül (EN)

You are cordially invited to the Topology Seminar organized by the Department of Mathematics.

Speaker: Aziz Kharoof (Bilkent University)
“Monads and their Algebras”

Abstract: We define monads, showing the relation with adjunction. We define algebra over monad, with examples and prove that every monad is defined by its algebras. We will define the Kleisli category of a monad and explain the comparison Theorem for the Kleisli construction. In addition, we will discuss Theorem 5.6.5 from the reference, the proof and some applications. During the talk our basic example will be the probability monad over a semiring, which allows us to generalize the convex set notion.
