### Notation for a functor between comma categories

Suppose we have two categories $D$ and $S$, as well as two functors $K,L:D\to S$ and a natural transformation $\varphi:K\to L$. Given another category $C$ and a functor $Y:C\to S^D$, is there a nice ...

### Why aren't *weak* test categories enough?

Short version : What is the motivation behind the local condition in the definition of a test category ? Why do we want the slice categories $A/a$ to be weak test ? Long version : I start ...

### Difference between the simplicial nerve and the nerve of a simplicial category

In Jacob Lurie's Higher Topos Theory book, he defines the following notion of a simplicial nerve: Definition 1.1.5.5. Let $\mathcal{C}$ be a simplicial category. The simplicial nerve ...

### Model structure on sSet

Which is the model structure on $\text{sSet}$ (category of simplicial sets) that makes $\text{sSet}$ Quillen equivalent to the category $\text{Cat}$ (of small categories) by the adjunction ...

### Morita theory for simplicial rings

My question is the following: is there an analog of Morita theorem in the simplicial setting? I mean, we can define two simplicial rings $A,B$ to be simplicially Morita equivalent is the categories ...

### Understanding Quillens Theorem A

Let me restate the theorem: Let $F\colon\mathcal{C}\to\mathcal{D}$ be a functor. If $F\downarrow x$ is contractible for every $x\in\operatorname{Ob}(\mathcal{D})$, then $F$ is a homotopy ...

### Why are simplicial categories useful?

By simplicial category here I mean simplicially enriched category, i.e. all $Hom$-sets are simplicial sets and compositions are morphisms of simplicial sets. My question is the following. Suppose I ...

### What (filtered) (homotopy) (co) limits does $\pi_0:\mathbf{sSets}\to\mathbf{Sets}$ preserve?

Consider the functor $\pi_0:\mathbf{sSets}\to\mathbf{Sets}$. $\pi_0$ does not preserve arbitrary limits $\pi_0$ does not send homotopy limits to limits $\pi_0$ does preserve filtered colimits ...

### Paths between 0-cells in a classifying space. II

Let $\mathcal{C}$ be a small category and $X,Y$ objects within. If $X$ and $Y$ (as $0$-cells) lie within the same path-component in $B\mathcal{C}$, can one say anything in general on how $X$ and ...

### What is an “absolute, equational pushout”?

I was leafing through Joyal and Tierney's Notes on simplicial homotopy theory. In the first few lines of the section on the skeleton of a simplicial set they display the simplicial identities as a ...

### Understanding the definition and notation of geometric realization

I had trouble making sense of the definition of geometric realization of a simplicial set. Let $\Delta^n$ be the standard n-simplex defined as the functor $\hom_\Delta(-,$*n*$): \Delta \rightarrow$ ...

### What is a copresheaf on a “precategory”?

Let $\mathcal{S}$ be a category with pullbacks. A precategory $\mathbb{C}$ in the sense of Borceux and Janelidze [Galois Theories, ยง7.2] comprises three objects $C_0, C_1, C_2$ in $\mathcal{S}$ and ...
