    This book presents a detailed account of the theory of quantaloids, a natural generalization of quantales. The basic theory, examples and construction are given and particular emphasis is placed on the free quantaloid construction, as well as on the perspective provided by enriched categories.

    Quantaoids; new quantaloids from old; free quantaloids and Q-enriched categories; an example - a categorical approach to automata and tree automata; modules, bimodules and *-autonomous categories.
