If you have a question about this talk, please contact JosÃ© Siqueira. Monads are endofunctors endowed with a structure that emulates that of a monoid. They were first defined on categories, but this notion can be generalised. For example we can consider pseudomonads on 2-categories, which are monads with diagrams commutative up to coherent isomorphisms (Blackwell, Kelly, Power, etc). Another possible generalisation is relative monads, which are not endofunctors but have a similar structure to monads. In “The formal theory of monads” Street studies monads in a formal way, i.e. defining them in a general 2-category. In this talk we will recall some aspects of Street’s work and show how they can be extended to pseudo and relative monads.
