category_theory.monoidal.transport

Transport a monoidal structure along an equivalence. #

When C and D are equivalent as categories, we can transport a monoidal structure on C along the equivalence, obtaining a monoidal structure on D.

We then upgrade the original functor and its inverse to monoidal functors with respect to the new monoidal structure on D.

We can upgrade e.functor to a lax monoidal functor from C to D with the transported structure.
