New answers tagged adjoint-functors
Just saw this post. It turns out that continuity for functions between topological spaces corresponds exactly to adjointness for certain naturally arising functors. To provide some more detail: Let X and Y be topological spaces, and let f:X->Y be a (not necessarily continuous) function. Let Closed(X) denote the category of closed sets of X, with morphisms ...
