I'm math student, in particular I'm interested in algebra, geometry, topology and category theory (especially higher dimensional category theory) and its application in mathematics.

I don't understand, what you mean by "of course, this is not explicitly defined in general, since it depends on the particular adjunction"? |

Simple show cases for the Yoneda lemma
@HansStricker what do you mean by $K_1$ and $K_2$ are the representable functors? |

A categorical characterization of ordinal numbers
I guess that for help could be useful to characterize $\star$ by universal property, otherwise is not clear what a category (not necessarily a subcategory of $\mathbf{Cat}$) closed by $\star$ should be. |

A categorical characterization of ordinal numbers
Note that in the note you have linked Joyal define $\star B$ as a functor of type $\mathbf {Cat} \to B\setminus \mathbf {Cat}$ not $\mathbf {Cat} \to \mathbf {Cat}$. |

A categorical characterization of ordinal numbers
The operation $\star$ does not commute with colimit: indeed if that where true then for every limit ordinal $\lambda=\bigcup_{\gamma < \lambda} \gamma$ you should have that $\lambda+1=\lambda\star[0]=\bigcup_{\gamma < \lambda} \gamma\star[0]=\bigcup_{\gamma < \lambda}\gamma+1=\lambda$ things that's not possible since $\lambda$ doesn't have a max while $\lambda+1$ does. |

Is there a precise definition of “mathematical formula”?
I suppose, I actually never studied this stuff by any particular book but used course notes. I believe that all these basic definition can be easily find in course notes of a course in mathematical logic. |
