Locally Presentable and Accessible Categories

Locally Presentable and Accessible Categories is a book by Jiří Adámek and Jiří Rosický about, unsurprisingly, locally presentable and accessible categories. It was published by Cambridge University Press in the London Mathematical Society Lecture Note Series, number 189, in 1994.

Locally presentable categories: Cocomplete possibly-large categories generated under filtered colimits by small generators under small relations. Equivalently, accessible localizations of free cocompletions. Accessible categories omit the cocompleteness requirement; toposes add the requirement of a left exact localization.
