Communicating Relational Thinking


Priyaa Srinivasan


July 2, 2024


In this talk I will give an overview of our recently completed experiment of communicating categorical thinking to a STEM-oriented audience outside mathematics. Angeline, Brendan, Paul and myself recently authored a free online textbook titled “Relational thinking: from Abstractions to Applications”. In this talk, I will walk through the contents of the book and equally importantly the open source technologies behind the book. This talk is an invitation to the audience not only to read the book but also to create their own inclusive material around category theory / math leveraging new technologies.
