Universal mapping is an aspect of category theory that applies mathematical functions to various sciences and disciplines, such as algebra and computer science. It includes identifying systems that can be universally applied over separate disciplines.
The logic of category theory involves representations of mathematical functions called “morphisms,” which consist of objects that associate with one another through arrows that represent their identity function. Morphisms can be applied over several different disciplines when they satisfy a universal property. Universal mapping creates identity maps that unify different functions.
