  • It is often convenient to view a monic' arrow i: A \rightarrowtail C, defined in Chapter 1, as showing that ''A'' is a copy of a part of ''C'', and that ''i'' maps the copy on to that part. For example, in '''Set''', the '''monic arrows are the one-to-one functions and, clearly, if ''i'' is one-to-one then ''A'' is a copy of a subset of ''C'', namely of the image of ''i .
