Left Kan Extensions


Left Kan Extensions

data Lan g h a where Source

The left Kan extension of a Functor h along a Functor g.


Lan :: (g b -> a) -> h b -> Lan g h a 


Functor (Lan f g) Source 
(Functor g, Applicative h) => Applicative (Lan g h) Source 
(Functor g, Apply h) => Apply (Lan g h) Source 

toLan :: Functor f => (forall a. h a -> f (g a)) -> Lan g h b -> f b Source

The universal property of a left Kan extension.

fromLan :: (forall a. Lan g h a -> f a) -> h b -> f (g b) Source

fromLan and toLan witness a (higher kinded) adjunction between Lan g and (Compose g)

toLan . fromLanid
fromLan . toLanid

glan :: h a -> Lan g h (g a) Source

This is the natural transformation that defines a Left Kan extension.

composeLan :: (Composition compose, Functor f) => Lan f (Lan g h) a -> Lan (compose f g) h a Source

composeLan and decomposeLan witness the natural isomorphism from Lan f (Lan g h) and Lan (f o g) h

composeLan . decomposeLanid
decomposeLan . composeLanid

decomposeLan :: Composition compose => Lan (compose f g) h a -> Lan f (Lan g h) a Source

composedAdjointToLan :: Adjunction f g => h (g a) -> Lan f h a Source

lanToComposedAdjoint :: (Functor h, Adjunction f g) => Lan f h a -> h (g a) Source

lanToComposedAdjoint and composedAdjointToLan witness the natural isomorphism between Lan f h and Compose h g given f -| g
