Descent Theory generalizes the topological notion of gluing to more abstract mathematical structures. This talk seeks to give an intuitive and accessible overview of descent theory in categories. In addition, through some basic examples, I hope to motivate the study of necessary coherence conditions for general gluing. Time permitting, I will talk further on the connections between Descent Theory and the Categorical Galois Theory of Janelidze.

This talk is part of the Junior Category Theory Seminar series.
