Each class session shall start with a lecture, a short break, and then a session dedicated to the previous week's homework problems. The homework problems will appear on this site. Topos theory has many different guises. On one hand, a Grothendieck topos is a generalization in fact categorification of a topological space, a viewpoint which underpinned Grothendieck's own intuition on topoi, and aided his proof of one of the Weil conjectures. On the other hand, every topos can be thought of as a mathematical universe itself in which one can do mathematics. In fact, there is a duality between Grothendieck topoi and certain first-order theories of logic, called geometric theories.

Sheaves and presheaves are important structures at the intersection of logic and geometry. Presheaves fit into categorical logic as a relatively inexpressive logic, less expressive than algebraic theories , yet they still encompass many important examples. Presheaves are equivalent to discrete fibrations. Relational presheaves , the relational counterpart of presheaves. Every category of presheaves is an elementary topos, known as a presheaf topos. Much of the literature on topos theory is related sheaves and presheaves. Not only do graphs form a category of presheaves; there are also sheaves on graphs.

MathOverflow is a question and answer site for professional mathematicians. It only takes a minute to sign up. I am a third year undergraduate who has just learnt the rudimentals of category theory. My specialization is computer science, not mathematics. As part of my course work I want to write an essay on Topos theory.
