Abstract
This paper describes basic concepts from category theory, which are commonly used in functional programming. These concepts
are applied to shader programming and to the rendering pipeline and the whole rendering pipeline is formally modelled using category theory. This model can be used for more abstract and formal approach to shader programming. Mathematical formalization of the rendering pipeline and its stages can be helpful in shader compiler design, for proving algorithms, complexity analysis, and other tasks.
