The covariant form of the Yoneda lemma states that `f`

is naturally
isomorphic to `Yoneda f`

.

This is described in a rather intuitive fashion by Dan Piponi in

## Synopsis

- newtype Yoneda f a = Yoneda {
- runYoneda :: forall b. (a -> b) -> f b

- liftYoneda :: Functor f => f a -> Yoneda f a
- lowerYoneda :: Yoneda f a -> f a
- maxF :: (Functor f, Ord (f a)) => Yoneda f a -> Yoneda f a -> Yoneda f a
- minF :: (Functor f, Ord (f a)) => Yoneda f a -> Yoneda f a -> Yoneda f a
- maxM :: (Monad m, Ord (m a)) => Yoneda m a -> Yoneda m a -> Yoneda m a
- minM :: (Monad m, Ord (m a)) => Yoneda m a -> Yoneda m a -> Yoneda m a
- yonedaToRan :: Yoneda f a -> Ran Identity f a
- ranToYoneda :: Ran Identity f a -> Yoneda f a

# Documentation

`Yoneda f a`

can be viewed as the partial application of `fmap`

to its second argument.

## Instances

liftYoneda :: Functor f => f a -> Yoneda f a Source #

The natural isomorphism between `f`

and

given by the Yoneda lemma
is witnessed by `Yoneda`

f`liftYoneda`

and `lowerYoneda`

yonedaToRan :: Yoneda f a -> Ran Identity f a Source #

`Yoneda f`

can be viewed as the right Kan extension of `f`

along the `Identity`

functor.
