Algebraic K-theory is mainly the study of K-groups of rings. For a ring R, K_0(R) is the group completion of the monoid formed by isomorphism classes of projective R-modules under direct sum, higher K-groups are a generalization of this. Topological K-theory has something to do with vector bundles, I don't really understand it, but my understanding is that it's pretty different from algebraic K-theory. We need these for pretty much the same reason we need any higher math - they're naturally interesting and help solve problems in adjacent fields.

On a serious note, I completely agree that making functions (and thereby associativity if you want) a primary part of your axiomatics.
At the same time I really seek to understand understand why you would want to drop such a fruitful notion as the binary predicate of membership. In short, I don't see why people would want to axiomize topoi in a standalone category theoretical framework, if there seems to be no harm in having at least a weak set theory on the side.

I'm not really a geometer. I'm more of a topologist, so I don't think I ca answer your question in satisfactory detail. I can give you plent of nice examples in topology if you want.

>why you would want to drop such a fruitful notion as the binary predicate of membership
I guess philosophy plays a large part, as in any issue related to foundations. Personally I find it much more appealing to axiomatize sets and functions between them than to axiomatize membership.
Mind you, the two resulting systems are equivalent. An element x in a set X corresponds to a function x : I -> X , where I is a final object, i.e. a one-point set.
One of the nice things about this approach is that "generalized", or "S-shaped" elements x: S -> X occur much more naturally and allow for generalized logical systems.
You don't need to axiomatize all topoi, only the topos Set, in which we then define all our familiar constructions. Recall that a topos is just a sheaf category over a site.
Topoi provide the natural for generalized logic and constructive mathematics, but that's about all I know about them.

I was looking into algebraic geometry earlier in the year.
An affine scheme is essentially a geometric object made from a ring. A scheme is a collection of affine schemes glued together in a similar fashion to a manifold made of open balls. The points of an affine scheme are the prime ideals of the ring it is made form, which are given the Zariski topology.
The category of affine schemes is dual to the category Comm, and thus has Spec(Z) as a terminal object.

Why would a CS code monkey learn all of that? I typed this out in an intuitive manner to convey true understanding, as opposed to just throwing definitions copied form Wikipedia. Please abandon your delusions.

You don't really give an argument why not start with both at the same time. I see how it's practical for doing "fuzzy" generalizations (although I don't know why using pairs where the second entry just contains the additional information wouldn't work).

The point is that both, functions and set membership are natural - and so dropping set membership and relying on a subobject classifier even for standard sets... feels stupid.

Maybe that's just the pragmatic physicist speaking.

Something like that. I have heard the buzzword "Heytin algebra" before, but I'm not really into logic that much. Also check out the Lawvere-Tierney topology for how to interpret truth values in a topos.

Back to foundations.
Well, there are a number of, in my opinion, bazarre things that happen in standard ZF which I don't like, and which dissapear in a categorical framework.
The problem occures because in ZF, everything is a set. As a consequence, the following questions are valid in ZF:
- Is 4 contained in the function f:R->R taking x to x^2 ?
- Is pi equal to the category of abelian groups and group homomorphisms?
Needless to say, these questions are pathological, and their validity indicates that this foundational system is messy and cluttered.
The categorical foundations, named the "Elementary Theory of the Category of Sets", or ETCS, gets rid of these pathologies.

>Why can't we all be friends?
On a serious note, I completely agree that making functions (and thereby associativity if you want) a primary part of your axiomatics.
At the same time I really seek to understand understand why you would want to drop such a fruitful notion as the binary predicate of membership. In short, I don't see why people would want to axiomize topoi in a standalone category theoretical framework, if there seems to be no harm in having at least a weak set theory on the side.
Is it only philosophy?

... well, it's kind of the principle of set theory that it all be indicative of itself as potential, and it's just the medium of constraints of the concurrent direction incurred by the first used sets in the system, and of that there are larger ordinate (p)-ediums of context which are condusive of 3 dimensional reconstruction in series in a medium between the two contexts, and that there be an implied medium between that, and system available constraints be contextual of the orientating standard of the same, so that the point being is that you make variable matrix contexts and orchestrate them to a context of value by a rough standard but as their looked into gain more exact differentiation and more exact matrix potential constraints on the artistic of concurant mediums as the context tabulates or more accurately marinates, but that the numerical assigning and the base systems have difficult constraints on the means that if their not understood the first time, their never understood again, and it's just the point that reality understands it all and contextually narrates humans into a consistent extent, and well, it's a thing that we really need to get compasses of properties of numbers in base number systems down, so chill it.

Philosophy's in the box; w/o reading that again just answer with a box, or variable curve

I've thought it over again: couldn't you make topoi-like theory, but then have an \in on the side, which you declare for sets once membershipt is established (functionally)? Best of both worlds?

>> No.5841069

>>5841031
You could, but if I understand you correctly, it would be a vacuous notion. Let {x} be a terminal object in Set, that is, a singleton set.
In Set we have an internal Hom functor Hom({x},-) which takes a set X and returns the set of its elements X' = Hom({x},X).
Then an element of X is just an element of X', and it is easy to see that X is isomorphic to X', so no new information is obtained from a membership construction.

>it is easy to see that X is isomorphic to X'
Actually it may take some pushing around of diagrams to prove this, but as long as Set is axiomatized correctly, they will be isomorphic.

>> No.5841098

>>5841069
yes, as you just declare the set membershit after it's functionally established, there is nothing new. But I think it's still gives a more practical theory.

The main thing to realize is that members of sets are not themselves sets in ETCS. Members of sets are functions.
This is a crucial point, since this is what forbids the pathological questions I posed earlier.

functions as in set, or abstract morphisms?

>> No.5841161

>>5841134
Abstract morphisms as far as the theory is concerned, but they can be thought of as concrete functions.
As you will readily observe, functions from a one-element into a set X behave exactly as elements of X.
For example, if p: {x} -> X is an element of X and f : X -> Y is a function, then the image of p, which is the composite fp : {x} -> Y , is an element of Y, as expected.

You may also observe that monomorphisms in Set behave as inclusions of subsets, and epimorphisms behave as quotient maps with respct of equivalence relations on sets.

the last bit is not completely obvious to me, although it makes sense.
So is it over the top to make the characterization of
<span class="math">\dots \to B \to A \to 0[/spoiler]
being exact, is this more than making the second arrow an epi?

>> No.5841215

>>5841188
Exactness doesn't make sense in Set, so you cannot define epimorphisms like that. This is because there is no "zero object" in Set, as the initioal and terminal objects are not isomorphic. (initial = empty set, terminal = singleton set)

What we do to define epimorphisms in general categories is the following:
f : X -> Y
is an epimorphism if whenever we have two morphisms
g, h : Y -> Z
then gf = hf implies g = h.

Dually, monomorphisms are defined like this:
f : X -> Y
is a monomorphism if whenever we have morphisms
g, h : Z -> X
then fg = fh implies g = h.

Record the girl and post vocaroo.

>>5841031
You can have material subsets of structural sets X as morphisms f : X -> Ω such that for any element x : 1 -> X, f ∘ x is the truth value of the containment of x in f, and if you define x ∈ f to be f ∘ x you even recover the usual notation.

>> No.5841230

>>5841188
>>5841215
Thus a monomorphism f: X -> Y sends each element of X to a unique element of Y, so X can be thought of as a subset.
On the other hand, an epimorphism sends collections of elements in X to single elements in Y such that the image covers Y, so Y can be thought of as a set of equivalence classes.

To prove this, you can do a proof by contradiction by constructing functions which do not fulfill the properties described in >>5841215

>> No.5841231

ah, right, there is no zero, of course.
I have absolutely nothing to do with this field, but I recently tried to get an intuition for exact sequences, which are not short.

No worries, mate. If you want to see exact sequences in their full generality, you want to study Abelian categories, which mimic the properties of categories of modules.
But for an introduction, it might be good to study Ab, the category of abelian groups and thir group homomorphisms, to get an intuition.
Exact sequences in general are the object of study in homological algebra. It's a fun study, you should check it out.

Those are the exact charistics, and the 0 is your thesis

Thats the NNNngG of it, just gotta hold that NNN(N^)g while writting and you can make a thing that's independent of you and more capable of mapping from than mapping into what you have, and that thesis then becomes a variable in the next builds identicate and by properites matrixable with other thesises; and ffs all the notation... fucking engineers, bloody fags the lot of 'em

Too far fetched. Not time.

Let X and Y be sets. The set of prdered pairs of objects in X and Y is the cartesian product X x Y, which categorically is defined like this:

X x Y is a set such that we have morphisms
p : XxY -> X and q : XxY -> Y
and such that if Z is any set with morphisms
f : Z -> X and g : Z -> Y
then there is a unique (note: uniqueness here is crucial) morphisms
h : Z -> XxY
such that f = ph and g = qh .

This uniquely determines XxY up to isomorphism, and then it behaves exactly like the set of prdered pairs (x,y) with x in X, y in Y.
Does this make sense to you?
