Distributive laws are a simple tool to resolve many questions that arise when working with monads and algebras: how to relate two algebraic structures on the same object, how to lift a functor from objects to algebras, how to compose monads, etc. This talk will introduce the relevant categorical notions and how they are connected via distributive laws, as well as give a taste of the surprising role they play in the formal theory of monads in a 2-category.

This talk is part of the Logic & Semantics for Dummies series.
