Noun[edit]

terminal object (plural terminal objects)

  1. (category theory) An object within a category which receives arrows from all other objects in that category, and such that each of these arrows is unique.
    In the category of sets, a terminal object is any singleton, since there exists a unique function, namely the constant function, from any given set into that singleton.
