In mathematics, categorical algebra is a subfield of algebra that approaches algebra from the categorical point of view. For example, the study of a symmetric monoidal category as an algebraic object might be considered as a part of categorical algebra. It is closely related to homotopical algebra. In the recent years, the field has been experiencing a turbulent change due to the infusion of topological ideas.
