Sheaves and presheaves
Sheaves arose in geometry as coefficients for cohomology and as descriptions of the functions appropriate to various kinds of manifolds. Sheaves also appear in logic as carriers for models of set theory. This text presents topos theory as it has developed from the study of sheaves. Beginning with several examples, it explains the underlying ideas of topology and sheaf theory as well as the general theory of elementary toposes and geometric morphisms and their relation to logic.

Sheaves in Geometry and Logic
Sheaves and presheaves are important structures at the intersection of logic and geometry. Presheaves fit into categorical logic as a relatively inexpressive logic, less expressive than algebraic theories , yet they still encompass many important examples. Presheaves are equivalent to discrete fibrations. Relational presheaves , the relational counterpart of presheaves. Every category of presheaves is an elementary topos, known as a presheaf topos. Much of the literature on topos theory is related sheaves and presheaves. Not only do graphs form a category of presheaves; there are also sheaves on graphs.
In mathematics , a sheaf is a tool for systematically tracking data such as sets, abelian groups, rings attached to the open sets of a topological space and defined locally with regard to them. For example, for each open set, the data could be the ring of continuous functions defined on that open set. Such data is well behaved in that it can be restricted to smaller open sets, and also the data assigned to an open set is equivalent to all collections of compatible data assigned to collections of smaller open sets covering the original open set Intuitively, every piece of data is the sum of its parts. Sheaves are understood conceptually as general and abstract objects. Their correct definition is rather technical. They are specifically defined as sheaves of sets or sheaves of rings, for example, depending on the type of data assigned to the open sets. There are also maps or morphisms from one sheaf to another; sheaves of a specific type, such as sheaves of abelian groups with their morphisms on a fixed topological space form a category.

When the paper The unification of Mathematics via Topos Theory by Olivia Caramello, says "one can generate a huge number of new results in any mathematical field without any creative effort. Topos theory provides a dictionary between certain areas of logic and certain areas of geometry.
