Monoidal categories are an important concept in category theory, with applications in representation theory, theoretical physics, logic and type theory. The last two make them especially interesting to computer scientists. In this talk, I introduce monoidal categories and look at some of their applications in logic and semantics. Among these will be an explanation of why monads are “monoids in the category of endofunctors”.

This talk is part of the Logic & Semantics for Dummies series.
