# Page "Functor" Paragraph 37

from
Wikipedia

Group actions / representations: Every group G can be considered as a category with a single object whose morphisms are the elements of G. A functor from G to Set is then nothing but a group action of G on a particular set, i. e. a G-set.

Likewise, a functor from G to the category of vector spaces, Vect < sub > K </ sub >, is a linear representation of G. In general, a functor G → C can be considered as an " action " of G on an object in the category C. If C is a group, then this action is a group homomorphism.
