# Objects in Categories

In category theory, **objects** are abstract entities specific to each category, ranging from sets to groups.

Objects and morphisms are the fundamental elements that constitute a category.

These abstract entities can represent a broad spectrum of mathematical concepts.

**Note**: Morphisms define the relationships between objects and are represented as arrows.

The exact nature of the objects in category theory isn't crucial; rather, it's the relationships between them—namely, the morphisms—that matter.

Visually, objects are shown as nodes in a directed graph, while morphisms are the edges that connect these nodes.

### Example

In the "Set" category, the objects are sets.

Consider a category composed solely of two sets, A and B:

$$ A = \{ 1,2,3 \} $$

$$ B = \{ a,b,c \} $$

A morphism $ f: A \rightarrow B $ might be a function connecting elements of set A with those in set B.

$$ f(1) = a $$

$$ f(2) = b $$

$$ f(3) = c $$

In essence, while objects in categories represent various mathematical entities, morphisms serve as the mechanisms through which these entities are interconnected and examined.

And so on.
