This is a research project funded by the Icelandic Research Fund, run at the Department of Computer Science of Reykjavik University from Jan. 2019 to Dec. 2021 (extended until Aug. 2022).

We study the following topics:

- graded monads and monad-like objects,
- graded distributive laws,
- interaction laws of monads and monad-like objects.
